In support of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), the Prevent Cancer Foundation® encourages everyone to observe World Cancer Day. This important day highlights the need for urgent action to increase cancer prevention, early detection, screening and diagnosis to save lives. The UICC aims to inspire and encourage action from individuals, the health community and governments to improve public awareness and access to early detection, screening and diagnosis.
“This World Cancer Day, we want people to know that many cancers can be managed and even cured, especially if they’re detected and treated as early as possible. By detecting cancer at its earliest stage, we seize the greatest opportunity to prevent millions of avoidable deaths worldwide.” – Dr. Cary Adams, CEO of UICC
