Cancer Awareness Months and Ribbons

Cancer awareness is very important to encourage people about cancer prevention, detection, and treatment. February 4 is the world cancer day. We celebrate this day to encourage UICC (e.g. Union for International Cancer Control) members which help to fight against cancer.
