World Cancer Day

Cancer is now the leading cause of death worldwide, according to the World Health Organization.  It crosses all boundaries, gender, ages, ethnicities and strikes both the wealthy and poor.  Thus, it will take a global effort to reduce the burden of cancer on our societies. 

Stand Up to Cancer released the video below to ask each of us to stand together on this World Cancer Day and pledge our support to fight cancer.  Our Stand Up to Cancer-funded researchers live this battle each day in their work to find better treatments.  Each of us can join the effort too.  Find your individual way to battle cancer, like quit smoking, eat more fruits and veggies, get screened, or donate to research organizations or advocacy groups.  Add them all up, and we may find our group effort can have a big impact.
