Every February 4, World Cancer Day unites the world’s population in the fight against cancer. The goal of World Cancer Day is to save millions of preventable deaths each year by raising awareness and education about the disease.
Great inroads are being made in treatment and prevention, but still, 8.2 million people die from cancer worldwide every year, out of which, 4 million people die prematurely (aged 30 to 69 years).
Support and care for cancer patients is an important component and legacy of hospice care. We are committed to helping every patient and family find ways to celebrate life and live fully every moment. On World Cancer Day, we join in fighting this disease and in reminding you of the millions of lives touched by it every day.
