World Cancer Day: Spreading Awareness Through Silver

The month of February features a few days that we take note of. Of course, there is Valentine’s Day and Presidents’ Day. Then there is Ash Wednesday and the lesser-known National Tooth Fairy Day. But every February 4th, there is a day that we should all mark in our calendars and become more active in recognizing. It’s a global campaign that understands the challenges ALL human beings face together and that is cancer.

Everyone knows someone or of someone that has gone through cancer. Whether fought and won or fought and lost, cancer affects every corner of this globe and will continue to do so. World Cancer Day is an awareness campaign that is driven by education and looks to unite everyone to “stand up for a cancer-free world.”

World Cancer Day - ‘I Am and I Will’

An international awareness day, the campaign initiative was created in 2000 and has exponentially grown into a movement that looks to unite every global citizen in the fight against cancer. Every February 4th, the initiative is led by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC). The intent of this world awareness day is to improve education and stimulate action through our lives personally, as one people, and through the government. Every year, activities and events take place around the world to remind people that we all have a responsibility to reduce the impact that cancer has on our families and within our communities.

The 2021 theme for World Cancer Day is “I Am and I Will.” It is the last year of the three-year campaign that began in 2019. For 2021, the organization looks to help drive home the sentiment that ‘together, all our actions matter.” The “I Am and I Will” theme, according to the World Cancer Day organization, “shows us that our actions have an impact on everyone around us, within our neighborhoods, communities, and cities. And that more than ever, our actions are also being felt across borders and oceans. This year is a reminder of the enduring power of cooperation and collective action. When we choose to come together, we can achieve what we all wish for: a healthier, brighter world without cancer. Together, all of our actions matter.” This reminder then begs the question: who are you and what will you do?
