Today is an important day in our calendar… It is a day that aims to raise awareness of something that has no doubt affected every single person around the world, or someone we hold dear to our hearts. Today is World Cancer Day.
On Thursday February 4th, 2016 we unite globally to encourage the prevention, detection and treatment of all forms of cancer. The primary goal of World Cancer Day is to reduce illness and death caused by cancer by 2020. This was founded and the goals agreed by Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) in 2008.
Cancer is the world’s biggest killer, but today we can raise awareness, prevent cancer, challenge perceptions, improve care, share knowledge through education and take action. As an group or as an individual, we need to make healthy choices, recognise signs and symptoms, ask for support and provide support for others, inspire others and give hope.
Some of the activities on World Cancer Day include coffee mornings, sports events, bake sales and fundraisers so please get involved.
Here @lyfewatches, we plan to continue to show our commitment to driving change by donating a minimum of 20% proceeds of every pink watch/strap sale to global cancer charities.
Have a great day!
