February 4th is World Cancer Day

February 4th is World Cancer Day

This year marks the beginning of a new three-year campaign titled “I Am and I Will”, which calls for people to make a “personal commitment” to combatting cancer.

World Cancer Day is part of the World Cancer Campaign, adopted following the World Summit Against Cancer for the New Millennium. This summit took place on 4 February 2000, and subsequently the first ever World Cancer Day was pencilled in for 4 February 2006. 

With the 'I am. I will'  campaign, awareness will be raised to show the public that everyone can play a role in battling cancer.
