February 4th has been chosen by the International Union Against Cancer (UICC) as a World Day Against Cancer, in order to inform and join all of us in the struggle to fight it.
The main motto of this year's campaign is: "We Can. I can"
Although the outbreaks of the disease have increased rapidly in recent years, science has made significant progress in the battle to tackle it. Prevention, early diagnosis and appropriate treatment are the most important weapons in our quiver.
It is time to put away our fears. It's time to look cancer in the "eyes".
I can. You can. We can.
