“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.” This statement is one of the main topics for this year’s World Cancer Day.
As the day approaches it hopes to inspire people as a collective or as individuals to do their part in reducing the global burden of cancer. Taking place under the tagline ‘We can. I can’.
The global event takes place on February 4 every year, uniting the world’s population in the fight against cancer.
It aims to save millions of preventable deaths each year by raising awareness and education about the disease, pressing governments and individuals across the world to take action.
