World Cancer Day
Every year, the Union for International Cancer Control's (UICC) World Cancer Day aims to bring the growing cancer crisis to the attention of the public, government leaders and health policymakers worldwide.
World Cancer Day is February 4th. AICR and our global network are helping to raise awareness of World Cancer Day in the US and throughout the world.
Marilyn Gentry, President of the American Institute for Cancer Research, urges Americans to get the facts about cancer.
Americans are less aware that they can protect themselves against cancer than they were four years ago, according to the latest survey from the AICR.
Show your support for World Cancer Day by pledging to spread the message and make one healthy change.
Myth: Cancer is just bad luck. Fact: You can protect yourself.
