|Dear AFCR supporters:
Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide, responsible for 8.8 million deaths per year. However, we know that more than one third of these deaths are preventable, and if detected early enough, many cancers are curable.
We must act now because the global cancer epidemic is enormous and set to rise. It is predicted to increase from 14.1 million in 2012 to 19.3 million cases per year in 2025.
February 4 is the World Cancer Day, sponsored by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), of which AFCR is a member organization. Every year on February 4 is the time of year when the international cancer community to come together and raise awareness to help save lives.
