World Cancer Day 2010

World Cancer Day, led by UICC, its members and with the support of the World Health Organization (WHO), raises awareness of cancer prevention. Every year, over 12 million people receive a cancer diagnosis and 7.6 million die of the disease. The good news is that approximately 40% of cancers are potentially preventable. 

 

Each year on 4 February, WHO supports International Union Against Cancer to promote ways to ease the global burden of cancer. Preventing cancer and raising quality of life for cancer patients are recurring themes.

This year's theme, “Cancer can be prevented too”, focusses on simple measures to prevent cancer such as:

  • no tobacco use
  • a healthy diet and regular exercise
  • limited alcohol use
  • protection against cancer-causing infections.

mission statement:

“Sergiy Stakhovsky believes that cancer treatment should never be stopped or slowed down because of lack of funding. As a result, Ace The Cancer Fund supports financially the Ukrainian Institute of Cancer – the nation’s leading cancer center. Given the changing times and the rising cost of healthcare, Sergiy’s dream is to make the difference that it takes to make that fight for survival a better one.”
