What is World Cancer Day?
 
A truly global event taking place every year on February 4th (please note that our Open House is on February 3rd) World Cancer Day unites the world’s population in the fight against cancer.
 
It aims to save millions of preventable deaths each year by raising awareness and education about the disease, pressing governments and individuals across the world to take action. 
 
Why World Cancer Day is important
 
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 the ideal opportunity to spread the word and raise the profile of cancer in people’s minds and in the world’s media.

 

We look forward to seeing you on February 3rd, 2017!
