World Cancer Day 2018 happens on February 4th.
World Cancer Day (WCD) is a truly global event taking place every year on 4 February, 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.
In 2018, World Cancer Day is taking place under the tagline ‘We can. I can.’, and explores 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, everyone has the power to take action to reduce the impact that cancer has. World Cancer Day is a chance to reflect on what you can do, make a pledge and take action.
