World Cancer Day – Shine a Light on the World
In 2018, it was estimated that 1,735,350 new cancer cases would be diagnosed in the United States and 609,640 individuals would pass from the disease [Cancer.gov]. We cannot sit by and ignore this life altering disease, which is why World Cancer Day, recognized on Feb. 4, is such an important awareness campaign to the Arfinn Med team.
This year, the World Cancer Day campaign surrounded itself around the hashtag #IAmandIWill, which invited social media users to share who they are and what they plan to do to show support as an advocate. Additionally, numerous cancer patients and survivors shared their own cancer stories.
Among the many that shared their stories throughout various social media platforms, a handful of celebrities, including Shawn Mendes, Will.i.am. and Sabrina Carpenter, partnered with the World Cancer Day organization to share how they plan to be an advocate. Mendez vowed to use his voice for a positive change, while Sabrina shared that she would love and support those battling the disease.
Like most years, World Cancer Day allies also invited famous landmarks around the world to illuminate with an orange glow in support of beating cancer. Some of the monuments that participated this year include Fountain of the Four Rivers, Niagara Falls, Victoria Theatre and more!
