February 4th is World Cancer Day and this year it’s all about action. #WeCanICan
World Cancer Day is about exploring ‘how everyone – as a collective or as individuals – can do their part to reduce the global burden of cancer’ (WorldCancerDay.org). It’s a day to make people aware that their actions, like smoking, can play a part in them potentially getting cancer, but also, that people can take action if they or a loved one is diagnosed with cancer – Ask For Support.
To get as many people as possible around the globe to talk about cancer on 4 February
This year they’re encouraging everyone to join the ‘Talking Hands’ social media campaign and show their messages, their support and what actions they’re taking, on their hands. Find out more on how to join the campaign with their toolkit.
