Fight Cancer on World Cancer Day

Posted on February 03 2017

 Every year, on February 4, a global event unites the world’s  population to combat cancer. On social media platforms, two  hashtags ( #WorldCancerDay & #WeCanICan ) are utilized to  tell stories, list statistics, and encourage society to help  reduce forms of cancer. At www.worldcancerday.org, you can  get involved with the great cause, view how many posts are  being generated with the two hashtags that are  aforementioned in this blog post, and most importantly, you can read stories about cancer survivors and individuals who are currently battled the awful disease.

From the years 2008-2012, new cancer cases grew by 1.4 million and death tolls from cancer rose by 600,000. Currently, 8.2 million people die from cancer each year. From that 8.2 million, 4 million die between the ages of 30 and 69. By 2025, it is projected that new cancer cases will rise to 19.3 million and the death toll will increase to 11.5 million.
