World Cancer Day 2019

World Cancer Day is an international day to recognise the global burden of cancer and shine a light on ways we can reduce the number of premature deaths for cancer and improve quality of life and survival rates.

World Cancer aims to call upon government leaders and health policy-makers to significantly reduce the global cancer burden, promote greater equity, and integrate cancer control into the world health and development agenda.

This year’s slogan, ‘I Am and I Will’ is an empowering call-to-action urging for personal commitment and represents the power of individual action taken now to impact the future.

On February 4th, we asked members of the Lift community to think about what they pledge to do and we photographed their thoughts.
