World Cancer Day / Saturday February 4th 2017
Cancer affects people of all ages and locations. Currently, 8.2 million die worldwide from cancer each year. Cancer and other health risks increase exponentially with age. Nearly half the population who suffer from cancer are elderly (69 and older). With the rise of older Americans and increase of life expectancy, cancer may soon replace heart disease as the leading cause of death.
#WorldCancerDay is the perfect opportunity to raise awareness and put cancer in the media spotlight. World Cancer Day is operating under the campaign “We can. I can.” and aims to explore how to make an impact and reduce the global burden of cancer.
