World Cancer Day 4 February 2021
Each year on 4 February, World Cancer Day empowers communities and individuals across the world to show support and raise the profile of cancer in a positive and inspiring way.
The campaign theme for World Cancer Day 2019-2021 is ‘I Am and I Will’. Whoever you are, you have the power to reduce the impact of cancer for yourself, the people you love and the world.
Get involved any way you can. Because together, we can create change.
To find out how you can get involved visit World Cancer Day.
