World Cancer Day is a global campaign launched annually on February 4 designed to raise cancer awareness and education, and enact governments and individuals around the world to join the fight against this disease.
Under the tagline, "Not beyond us," World Cancer Day 2015 takes a positive, proactive approach to cancer awareness and prevention by highlighting solutions that do exist accross the continuum of diagnosis, treatment, and care. This year, World Cancer Day centers around four major themes:
- Choosing healthy lives
- Delivering early detection
- Achieving treatment for all
- Maximizing quality of life
