WorldCancerDay 2016: We can, I can

A truly global event taking place every year on 4 February, World Cancer Day unites the world’s population in the fight against cancer. Taking place under the tagline ‘We Can. I Can.’, World Cancer Day 2016-2018 will explore how everyone – as a collective or as individuals – can do their part to reduce the global burden of cancer.

We can.
I can.' is the theme for 2016 World Cancer Day on 4 February. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the global awareness campaign, the aim this year is to prove that every single person can make a difference in the fight against 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 happened  4th February 2006. That tradition has continued every year, and the custom does not stop in 2016.
Why advertise with us

With this year's 'We can. I can.' campaign, awareness will be raised to show the public that everyone can play a role in battling cancer. For example;
We can.
    Stop myths that lead to stigma against cancer patients
    Encourage schools to educate children on how to prevent cancer
    Demand governments increase funding for cancer treatment facilities

I can.

    Stop smoking for good
    Learn about the signs and symptoms linked to cancer
    Return back to work after cancer treatment, to give it the biggest insult of all

Cancer Research UK is also following this theme, and they also adopted their own 'We Can Do Something About Cancer.' The organisation is promoting 'Unity Bands' this year, as they aim to sell as many as possible to raise funds for cancer treatments.

Unity Bands are two pieces of coloured rope which can be tied together around the wrist – to symbolise sticking together when cancer tries to bring us down.
