Together with all and sundry, JL Properties wishes all fathers and potential ones a Happy Father’s day. The heart of a father is indeed the masterpiece of nature as indicated – Prevost Abbe.
Father’s Day originated in the United States on 19 June, 1910 and since then has become a legacy in celebrating Fathers every now and then. The gift of a Father cannot been seen by our eyes, yet he sacrificies his very breath, sweat and everything to comfort his family. Friedrich Schiller cited that it is not flesh and blood but the heart, makes them Fathers. Fatherhood is a very crucial responsibility and yet the greatest adventure one can experience.
On this auspicious occassion of Father’s Day, we encourage all our businessmen and stakeholders to have a memorable day with their fathers and children.

In Standing with solidarity together with the entire human populace towards breast cancer awareness this Month, our ladies at JL Properties came to work bedazzled in Ribbbon Pink Shirts. The pink color and ribbon is a universal symbol of breast cancer, illustrating the cause, raising awareness and bringing together women in solidarity.
“Patients are experiencing better outcomes as a result of early campaign and diagnosis, state-of-the-art treatment options, and less extensive surgery,” says Dr. Catherine Tuite. As the City’s Favorite Developer, embarking on such heigthened campaing is a priority that of the disease has unquestionably led to a greater number of women being screened for breast cancer, as early detection leads to early prevention.
These awareness provide an opportunity to help educate the public on the health impact of breast cancer, the importance of taking personal responsibility for health, and the new research studies that ultimately affect clinical practice.
Breast self-exam, or regularly examining your breasts on your own, can be an important way to find a breast cancer early, when it’s more likely to be treated successfully. Just in case a fellow female hasn’t done hers, kindly encourage her to do so. Click here for some self examination tips.
The first mention of cancer of any kind was a case of breast cancer documented in Egypt around 1600 BC. The Edwin Smith Papyrus, an ancient text found in 1860 in an Egyptian tomb, described eight cases of tumors or ulcers of the breast. The first doctors attempting to treat breast cancer wrote of the mysterious disease: “There is no treatment!”
“The wandering womb”
Cases of breast cancer in ancient times were often attributed to what Hippocrates called “the wandering womb.” This particular explanation hinged on the belief that a woman’s uterus could move throughout the body leaving health problems of every kind in its wake.
The first successful Treatment
French surgeon Jean Louis Petit and later Scottish surgeon Benjamin Bell were the first to surgically remove lymph nodes, breast tissue, and chest muscle as a treatment for the disease. This method was the first successful treatment of breast cancer.
Better surgery, better outcomes
By the 1970s, researchers began to develop the lumpectomy, a less invasive surgical option that removes only the cancerous tumor and any surrounding tissue affected by the tumor. By 1985, research found that a lumpectomy followed by radiation treatment gave women a chance of survival equal to the considerably more invasive mastectomy.
Treatments that failed
In the 1980s and 1990s, thousands of women who had undergone standard breast cancer treatment also received high-dose bone marrow transplants, with the hope that this would improve their long-term survival rates. Unfortunately, the treatment proved disastrous after 15 to 20 percent of the women died due to the treatment.
What you can do now?
As research continues to improve, there are steps that every person can take to prevent breast cancer or any kind of cancer: eat a healthy diet, get regular exercise, keep your weight down, and avoid alcohol whenever possible.
