Today is WORLD CANCER DAY. World Cancer Day is marked every February 4th to raise awareness of cancer and to encourage its prevention, detection, and treatment. World Cancer Day was founded by the

Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) to support the goals of the World Cancer Declaration, written in 2008. The primary goal of the World Cancer Day is to significantly reduce illness and death caused by cancer by 2020.[1]

There are so many initiatives run on World Cancer Day to show support for those affected by cancer.

Taking place under the tagline “We can. I can.”, World Cancer Day 2016-2018 will explore how everyone – as a collective or as individuals – can do their part to reduce the global burden of cancer.

Just as cancer affects everyone in different ways, all people have the power to take various actions to reduce the impact that cancer has on individuals, families and communities.

World Cancer Day is a chance to reflect on what you can do, make a pledge and take action. Whatever you choose to do ‘We can. I can.’ make a difference to the fight against cancer.

Spread The Word.
