World Cancer Day 2019

February 4 is World Cancer Day! Sponsored by the Union for International Cancer Control, World Cancer Day is a global initiative to raise awareness, encourage prevention, and fight for greater access to life-saving diagnostic tools and cancer treatments around the world. This year’s theme is #IAmAndIWill, encouraging a personal commitment to accelerate progress and reduce the impact of cancer all around you.
