World Cancer Day, celebrated on 4 February, is an opportunity for people all over the world to unite to effect global change.
This year's theme, #IAmAndIWill, acknowledges that we all have the power to do something that will bring a cancer free future closer. We are all the hero of our own story.
Need a little inspiration? Here are five ways that you can take action today in just a few minutes:
- Make a donation towards ground-breaking cancer research
- Connect someone you know to a 13 11 20 nurse to talk about cancer
- Educate yourself on how you can catch cancer early
- Check today's UV levels using the SunSmart app
Whether you're a researcher, a policymaker, a parent or a student-there are so many ways that you can make an impact.
So who are you, and what will you do today for cancer prevention, support or research?
