World Cancer Day Aims To Reduce Cancer Deaths By 2020

World Cancer Day was founded in 2008 by the Union for International Cancer Control, in an effort to significantly reduce illness and death caused by cancer by 2020. A description on the World Cancer Day website reads:

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 are focusing our messaging on the four myths above. In addition to being in-line with our global advocacy goals, these overarching myths leave a lot of flexibility for members, partners and supporters to adapt and expand on for their own needs.
