Feb 4 is World Cancer Day.
To increase awareness for the fight against this deadly disease, 625 worldwide events are taking place, according to the World Cancer Day website.
On the local front, DJ Rosalyn Lee's touching Instagram post has prompted many of her followers to reminisce about the loved ones they have lost to cancer.
Let's take a moment today to remember as well.
On her post, Lee shared how she grieved for her mum: "I called her mobile number on a few occasions over a few years after her death, just to hear the ringtone, and imagined the possibility of her answering. And I would hang up after a few rings so that I can continue imagining that.
"Dunno who took over her number, dunno why it kept ringing.. and despite missed calls, no one ever called back. haha pyscho right? ive since stopped doing it."
