The fourth of February, 2016 is celebrated as the World Cancer Day for the year 2016. The tagline for this years World Cancer Day is- “We Can. I can.”
This is the 10th Anniversary of the global awareness programme. The World Cancer Day was founded by Union For International Cancer Control. The goal of this day is to reduce death and illness caused by cancer by the year 2020.
Cancer awareness, its treatment, prevention and detection are the main issues that this day works for. According to the World Cancer Day site- ” how everyone – as a collective or as individuals – can do their part to reduce the global burden of cancer” is what the day stands for.
Hoping that more and more people become aware of this day.
