The theme this year is I Can/We Can, where all over social media people are sharing what they can do to prevent cancer. Take a look at the vines we have created about what we can do to help prevent cancer.
Here are some of the other World Cancer Day activities taking place across our Network.

American Institute of Cancer Research has published a blog on the importance of World Cancer Day and Cancer Prevention Month, and has also launched a quiz about our awareness of cancer risks.
Collaborating to fight cancer
World Cancer Research Fund Netherlands (Wereld Kanker Onderzoeks Fonds) is collaborating with the National Cancer Registry of the Netherlands (IKNL), IPSO and the Dutch Cancer Society to mark World Cancer Day.
A special website highlights the vital role of collaboration in the fight against cancer, and the importance of prevention, early diagnosis, treatment and aftercare in the fight against cancer.
WCRF Netherlands is also running their campaign Samen Kanker Voorkomen to raise national awareness of lifestyle cancer risk factors.
