World Cancer Day:  Thursday 4th February

Gosh what an impact cancer has had so far this year; as we have lost some of the great British WCD2016_WeCanICanicons/legends to cancer including David Bowie, Alan Rickman and Sir Terry Wogan. Very sad but unfortunately they are not the first or the last.

Currently, 8.2 million people die from cancer worldwide every year, out of which, 4 million people die prematurely (aged 30 to 69 years). 

World Cancer Day is a global event taking place every year on 4th February with the aim to save millions of preventable deaths each year by raising awareness and education about the disease and pressing governments and individuals across the world to take action.

World Cancer Day (#WorldCancerDay) is the ideal opportunity to spread the word and raise the profile of cancer in people’s minds and in the world’s media.

There are many ways to get involved in the celebration of World Cancer Day; so we encourage you to please get involved if you can.  More information can be found here including:

  • Add your event to the Map of Impact -The interactive World Cancer Day Map of Impact aims to feature all of the events, (social media) activities and actions that are taking place on/around World Cancer Day.
  • Support World Cancer Day #WCD on social media – The ‘Talking Hands’ social media campaign is an entertaining and easy way to get involved in World Cancer Day, to show your support to the fight against cancer and increase the global impact of the Day.
  • Download materials – campaign materials such as posters, factsheets and toolkits for your use to support and promote the day and the theme. Be sure to share them within your organisation and wider network.

Please visit the World Cancer Day website or Cancer Research UK for more information.

If you or a loved one are suffering from cancer do take a look at our cancer factsheet giving you the latest information, support and advice and if you need any discreetly adapted clothing for men or women do take a look at our range of daywear and nightwear.
