NATIONAL NEWS - On World Cancer Day, 4 February, the Cancer Association of South Africa (Cansa) and Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) encourage people to set and achieve personal goals enabling them to lower cancer risk and for cancer patients to optimise health, especially in the light of the Covid-19 pandemic.
As part of World Cancer Day, the organisation is challenging people and organisations to work with Cansa to raise awareness of their services.
This year is the third and final year of the theme, "I Am and I Will" to mark World Cancer Day, which is all about you and your commitment to act.
Cansa and the UICC challenge individuals to make a personal commitment to lower the impact of cancer for themselves, the people they love and the world.
