World Cancer Day: Let’s Unite and Take a Stand Against Cancer
World Cancer Day: Let’s Unite and Take a Stand against Cancer!
Taking place every fourth of February, World Cancer Day is a worldwide observance aimed at bolstering the fight against the deadly disease and further reducing the number of its victims. The campaign spearheaded by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) seeks to spread global awareness on cancer prevention, detection, and treatment. It also tackles misinformation about the disease and the stigma of cancer victims.
The event is used by cancer nonprofits as an opportunity to encourage people to extend their helping hands to those battling the devastating disease.
Recent statistics show that cancer deaths have declined significantly over the years, thanks to early detection, screening, and advanced treatment methods.
However, this doesn’t mean that raising awareness is no longer necessary since millions of lives are still at stake. That is why World Cancer Day is a timely reminder that we still need to do our part to reach out and help cancer victims and convince everyone else to do the same.
Themes for this global event vary every three years. This year, the campaign theme is “I Am and I Will.” The goal is to promote the idea that our personal actions can impact the lives of cancer patients and their families.
How World Cancer Day Is Observed
The UICC and WHO are two of the world’s leading health organizations that are working closely together to fight cancer and help its victims worldwide.
Governments, companies, and nonprofits participate in the event by raising public awareness on the different types of cancer, their symptoms, and how they can be prevented. They do this by distributing booklets, leaflets, educational kits, and fact sheets to the public.
In observance of World Cancer Day, media outlets would host special programs that focus on cancer-related topics. In some countries, events such as formal luncheons or dinners are held to raise funds for cancer research. Local communities and charities would also organize various fundraisers to support projects geared at helping cancer patients.
You can be a part of this worldwide campaign by simply conducting research on the latest developments about cancer and sharing the information to the public through social media.
If you prefer taking on a more active role, you can try volunteering at a cancer facility, attending a fund-raising event, visiting cancer patients at a nearby hospital, or donating to a cancer charity.
