World Cancer Day takes place on 4 February every year. The day aims to raise awareness, fundraise and galvanise action to reduce the devastating impact that cancer has on the world. It’s an important day for everyone to come together to raise awareness of the issues surrounding cancer and how it affects everyone’s lives. World Cancer Day is led by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), and Friends of Cancer Patients (FOCP) is proud to support this awareness day.
Theme: Close the Care Gap
This year’s theme, “Close the Care Gap,” is about understanding and recognizing the inequities in cancer care across the world.
For World Cancer Day we want to highlight that with your support and kind donations last year we were able to support 258 cancer patients and their families in UAE. There is still a huge need for more treatment and support for all cancers affecting children and young adults.
Will you help us achieve this goal? Get involved and spread awareness.
