World Cancer Day takes place every year on 4th February, uniting the world’s population in the fight against cancer.
Everybody knows someone who has been affected by cancer. Here at 29studios cancer has touched us all in so many different ways, through our families, our friends and our colleagues, who are really more like family than colleagues.
It’s important for us to do what we can to fundraise and raise awareness for those in need of life-saving treatment and support. We are big supporters of the Beatson Cancer Charity and have taken part in many events raising money and making so new friends along the way. Many are still with us, but those who are not will never be forgotten.
It’s unbelievable, but currently 8.2 million people die from cancer worldwide every year. Of these people, 4 million people die prematurely aged 30 to 69. And this does not take into consideration the millions of people whose lives are forever changed by their battle to fight and beat cancer.
World Cancer Day is the ideal opportunity to spread the word and raise the profile of cancer in people’s minds and in the world’s media. It allows the vital organisations, who help many millions of people a year, to continue to do what they do.
You alone CAN make a difference, but together we can do so much more!
So do what you can and join the world for World Cancer Day 2017.
