World Cancer Day takes place on the 4th of February every year and is recognised as the day where the world unites to raise awareness, by further educating and inspiring action from everybody.
Whoever you are, wherever you live and whatever you do, show your commitment and join thousands of supporters from around the world this February 4th. Together, all of our actions matter.
Throughout the world, there is a lack of access to cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care, resulting in millions of people dying prematurely.
With COVID-19 disrupting and delaying essential cancer services, your support is needed now more than ever.
All donations raised through the World Cancer Day Solidarity Challenge go directly to the Union for International Cancer Control, the world’s oldest and largest cancer fighting organisation. Help by making an individual donation or fundraise amongst your community, friends and family.
Your support will make a critical difference in the global fight against cancer.
“Confronted with the unique crisis of the coronavirus pandemic, the inspiring progress that has been made in cancer prevention and treatment is at risk. If we want to see the cancer burden reduced – not increased – in the coming years, we need concerted, collective action by individuals, organisations and governments. We would like to thank everyone for taking part in the World Cancer Day Solidarity Challenge to play their part in fighting cancer.”
Cary ADAMS, Chief Executive Officer,
Union for International Cancer Control (UICC)
