Today is World Cancer Day!
Saturday, February 4th is World Cancer Day, when organizations and individuals around the world unite to raise awareness about cancer and work to make it a global health priority. Every year more than 8 million people die from cancer worldwide.
One of the most visible events marking the occasion in the United States will be in New York, where the Empire State Building will be lit blue and orange for the seventh year in a row. The colors are those of the Union for International Cancer Control, which organizes World Cancer Day.
Around the world, communities will hold festivals, walks, seminars, public information campaigns and other events to raise awareness and educate people on how to fight cancer through screening and early detection, through healthy eating and physical activity, by quitting smoking, and by urging public officials to make cancer issues a priority.
To everyone who has been touched by cancer, let your experience motivate you to take every precaution to ensure your future health and happiness.
To everyone we have lost to cancer, wish you were here.
