Today is World Cancer Day and the Cancer Research Institute has rolled out a plan to minimize the spread of the deadly disease, through their campaign in 2020.

Created in 2000, World Cancer Day has grown into a positive movement for everyone, everywhere to unite under one voice to face one of our greatest challenges in history.

This year’s World Cancer Day’s theme, “I Am and I Will,” is all about you and your commitment to act. We believe that through our positive actions, together we can reach the target of reducing the number of premature deaths from cancer and noncommunicable diseases by one third by 2030.

Each year, hundreds of activities and events take place around the world, gathering communities, organisations and individuals in schools, businesses, hospitals, marketplaces, parks, community halls, places of worship—in the streets and online—acting as a powerful reminder that we all have a role to play in reducing the global impact of cancer.
