World Cancer Day


February 4


12:00 am - 11:59 pm

World Cancer Day is an internationally recognised day to create greater awareness of cancer information. Each year has its own unique theme which aims to reduce the common notion that cancer is incurable and creates further awareness of treatment and prevention. Globally 10 million people die from cancer every year, and with it being the second leading cause of death a greater understanding of its impact is essential. One third of common cancers are preventable. By implementing strategies for prevention, cure and treatment we can educate ourselves on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle and minimise the risk of developing cancer. World Cancer Day demands governmental action to close the gap and provide better education of cancer information.. By sharing stories and increasing discussion, communities can learn how to better support others.
