Advocates, friends, and others around the world are preparing for World Cancer Day tomorrow, Saturday, February 4th. Some of our affiliated patient groups have organized events to commemorate the day, such as Friends of Max in India, who are holding a regional meeting for survivors and caregivers! Are you planning an event for World Cancer Day? Visit this link on the World Cancer Day website to have your event added to the world map of events.
In honor of World Cancer Day, here are some ways you can be an advocate in the fight against cancer:
- Sign the World Cancer Declaration and add a message of support on behalf of a loved one.
- Promote World Cancer Day through Facebook, Twitter, or your website. Social media is a great way to spread the word quickly and effectively about an important cause! Check out UICC's INFOGRAPHICS about cancer control, which can be shared and posted on the social media took of your choice.
- Stand Up 2 Cancer has a new Facebook application that allows you to ‘donate your Facebook status’ to World Cancer Day. Or you can promote World Cancer Day by pasting this into your Facebook status: “I stand for [friend, relative] on World Cancer Day.”
Together we CAN rise above cancer!
