February 4th is World Cancer Day. 2019 marks the beginning of the “I Am And I Will” campaign- a three year empowering call-to-action campaign urging for personal commitment. “I Am And I Will” represents the power of individual action taken now to impact the future.
World Cancer Day is organized by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) & celebrated each year on Feb 4, is an opportunity to rally the international community to end the injustice of preventable deaths and suffering from cancer. It’s a collective rally cry for all of us.
Kingston REM is dedicated the the case with our own #iamandiwill pledge to be a responsible neighbor (“I Am”) and raising awareness (“I Will”). Please follow @worldcancerday and visit their website for more information on how you can get involved and do your part to take action against this horrible disease.
The City of Boston is showing its support today as well. Look for the Zakim Bridge and Prudential Center to both be illuminated in the WCD orange and blue colors this evening.
