Thank you for your support
9 February 2016

A big thank you to all of you for your help and support 

 

We were really impressed and thrilled to see all the activities that took place on and around World Cancer Day 2016. We were very pleased with the excellent pick up of the "We can. I can." theme and the very creative "Talking Hands" submissions which featured on the World Cancer Day's Wall of Support.

It was a record breaking World Cancer Day and we are still taking stock of all the activities and events that took place around the world, but we wanted to share some preliminary highlights with you here below.
