Welcome to the World Cancer Day website

World Cancer Day 2013 (4 February 2013) focused on Target 5 of the World Cancer Declaration: Dispel damaging myths and misconceptions about cancer, under the tagline “Cancer - Did you know?”. World Cancer Day is a chance to raise our collective voices in the name of improving general knowledge around cancer and dismissing misconceptions about the disease. From a global level, we focused our messaging on the four myths above. In addition to being in-line with our global advocacy goals, these overarching myths left a lot of flexibility for members, partners and supporters to adapt and expand on for their own needs.
