A campaign to unite the world’s population in the fight against cancer, World Cancer Day is a global event taking place every year on 4 February. This year’s theme, “Not beyond us”, demonstrates a positive and proactive approach toward the disease, highlighting that solutions do exist across the continuum of cancer, and that they are within our reach. It is an opportunity to raise cancer awareness at the individual, community and governmental level, and mobilise solutions and catalyse change.
Led by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), a leading non-governmental entity founded in 1933 to promote greater unity and integration among cancer organisations, the 2015 campaign focuses on four key areas:
- Choosing healthy lives
- Delivering early detection
- Achieving treatment for all
- Maximising quality of life
In support of this important global initiative, we have gathered personalised messages from staff at CSI Singapore, as they reflect on their respective roles in the larger research community, as well as their thoughts and hopes for the future of cancer research, diagnosis and treatment.
