World Cancer Day – Saturday 4th February – We can, I can.

Currently 8.2 million people die a year from cancer with lung cancer being the most diagnosed globally. In the UK 2.5 million people are living with cancer and this number is expected to rise to 4 million by 2030.

Living with a cancer diagnosis is hard, it changes the life of person who is diagnosed and the lives of the people around them. World Cancer Day 2017 is part of a three year campaign to create reach and impact in the fight against cancer. The day aims to explore how ‘everyone – as a collective or as individuals – can do their part to reduce the global burden of cancer’, it is a moment where people are encouraged to pause and reflect on what WE can do and to pledge to take action.
