World Cancer Day is on February 4th, to make people aware of the risk factors and preventive measures that one can take to get prevented. The primary goal of World Cancer Day is to significantly reduce illness and death caused by cancer.

The theme for 2019-2021 is ‘I Am and I Will’.

It is an initiative under which the entire world can unite together in the fight against the global cancer epidemic. Cancer can be transformed from deadly to treatable and from treatable to preventable disease.

You can help reduce your risk of cancer by making healthy choices like eating right, staying active and not smoking.
