World Cancer Day (WCD) takes place every year on 4 February. It is led by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) and it promotes ways to ease the global burden of cancer, preventing cancer and raising quality of life for cancer patients.

World Cancer Day 2012 has been themed‘Together it is possible’, because, it says, if every person, organization, and government worked together, the world would be able to significantly reduce premature deaths from cancer.

On that day, communities around the world will hold film screenings, seminars, public information campaigns and other events to raise awareness and educate people on how to fight cancer through screening and early detection, through healthy eating and physical activity, by quitting smoking, and by urging public officials to make cancer issues a priority.
