World Cancer Day


Today's post is more on the serious side of things. As im sure most of you will be aware, today, February 4th 2016, is World Cancer Day!

The Background

World Cancer Day is a day where everyone from around the globe comes together to raise money and awareness for Cancer. It aims to prevent millions of deaths each year by educating people about the illness and pressing the government and individuals to take actions and not to ignore this problem. 

Around 8.2 million people worldwide die every year from Cancer. $ million of these people are aged 30-69.

The tagline "We Can,I Can" is being used. World Cancer Day is a chance to reflect and take action with Cancer. 

How You Can Help

There are many ways that you can help out and show your support. On the World Cancer Day website you can register what activity you would like to do and put it on their live action map. This shows everything that happens for the cause all over the world. 

You don't even need to donate any money. Why not post something on your social media accounts to show your support and to raise awareness.

Or you can grab one of the Unity Bands. These bands link together 2 colours to represent unity across the globe and us all coming together to challenge Cancer. They have the bands in white and pink, navy and white and pale blue and white. But you can mix and match whatever colour you like from these combinations. I have the pink and white one. 

This is very close to my heart, so if you can't donate then please show your support in another way.

However, if you would like to donate, the link is below. 

Thanks for reading,
