Every year on the 4th February a truly global event takes place, World Cancer dayunites the world’s population in the fight against cancer. It gives everyone the chance to raise their collective voices in the name of improving general knowledge around cancer and dismissing misconception about the disease. The awareness day aims to save millions of preventable deaths each year by improving education about the disease and to press governments and individuals across the world to take action.
