Join CancerCare on World Cancer Day on 4th February!

wcd2016World Cancer Day is an annual global event that takes places every year to unite 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!

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! This year’s theme  is “We can...I can..take action to help prevent and fight cancer."

CancerCare will be joining in with the campaign on social media by posting messages from our staff, therapists, volunteers and supporters. Here’s  how you can get involved!

1)   Write a supportive message on your hand starting with “I can…" or ‘We Can…’ that you can do to help CANCERCARE fight cancer!

The image can just be of your hand or with a prop in the background or feature two hands if your message is long! Here’s some ideas:

 “I can volunteer my time to help others” “I can share my story” “I can listen”  “I can give support” “I can ask CancerCare for support” “We can support each other”   “I can be breast aware” “I can eat healthier”“I can speak to my G.P about my concerns” “I can donate”

2)   Take a picture of your hand with your message and then share it on social media on 4th February using #WorldCancerDay & #WeCanICan

Make sure you tag CancerCare too so we can share your message with our friends! Your photo will appear on the World Cancer Day Wall of support at www.worldcancerday.org.
