World Cancer Day 4th February

4 Feb 2022

Cancer is the second leading cause of death worldwide. Together, we will change that.


While we live in a time of awe-inspiring advancements in cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment, many of us who seek cancer care hit barriers at every turn.

Income, education, geographical location and discrimination based on ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability and lifestyle are just a few of the factors that can negatively affect care.

So this year’s World Cancer Day’s theme, “Close the Care Gap”, is all about raising awareness of this equity gap that affects almost everyone, in high as well as low and middle-income countries, and is costing lives. Join us on the 4th February to speak out and stand up for a world less burdened by cancer. Share you story and tag #yestolife #CloseTheCareGap #WorldCancerDay
