World Cancer Day is celebrated on the 4th of February every year. It is a day that empowers all of us across the world to show support, raise our collective voice, take personal action and press our governments to do more. World Cancer Day is the only day on the global health calendar where we can all unite and rally under one banner for cancer in a positive and inspiring way.

The theme for the campaign is #IAmAndIWill. “Whoever you are, you have the power to reduce the impact of cancer for yourself, the people you love and for the world. It’s time to make a personal commitment.”

2019 is the launch of the 3-year campaign. It is a campaign built to resonate, inspire change and mobilise action long after the day has passed. “A multi-year campaign offers a chance to create a long-lasting impact by increasing public-facing exposure and engagement, more opportunities to build global awareness and impact-driven action.” More than one-third of cancer cases can be prevented if they are detected early.

There are many ways in which you can get involved with the campaign. These are all on the campaign’s website here.

Get involved anyway you can. Because together, we can create change.
