Go social and show your support for World Cancer Day

​Join the #WorldCancerDay conversation on social media on Monday, Feb. 4

Monday, February 4, is World Cancer Day, and the American Cancer Society is proud to join the domestic and international cancer community to unite in raising awareness about cancer and elevate its status as a global health priority. 

This year, the Union for International Cancer Control, which organizes World Cancer Day, is launching a new three-year campaign with the theme: “I Am and I Will.” The campaign calls for a personal commitment to help reduce the global burden of cancer. Cancer causes 1 in 6 deaths worldwide and is rapidly becoming a global pandemic.

Our ACS social media channels are joining together to share World Cancer Day messages with our volunteers, donors, partners, and those whom we help every day in the fight for a world without cancer. 

We are asking staff and volunteers to join the #WorldCancerDay conversation on one or more of our social media channels and share how you are fighting for a world without cancer. 

You can also join the Global Relay For Life team and their movement of more than 2.1 million Relayers worldwide by changing your Facebook photo frame in support of World Cancer Day. To add the frame, go to and search for "World Cancer Day Relay For Life."
