World Cancer Day, Saturday 4th February
It’s not long until the world gets together to raise awareness for Annual World Cancer Day on the 4th February. This year’s theme is “Close the Care Gap” to celebrate the progress of research, treatment and cancer care enabling more people to seek and receive the care they need and deserve.
What happens when we act?
More than one third of cancer cases can be prevented and another third can be cured if detected and treated early.
Be Cancer Aware
Early detection and treatment can save millions of lives every year.
