World Cancer Day
On 4 February 2017 the world unites on World Cancer Day to raise awareness, encourage prevention and accelerate progress in the fight against cancer.
Taking place under the tag line ‘We Can. I Can.’ patient advocates around the world will explore how everyone as a collective or as individuals, can do their part to reduce the global burden.
Founded by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), the day is all about supporting the goals of the World Cancer Declaration written in 2008. The primary goal of the day is to significantly reduce illness and death caused by cancer by 2020.
