World Cancer Day is the 4th February, and for the first time Cancer Research UK is working with three of the UK’s leading cancer charities to make a bigger difference this World Cancer Day.

Cancer Research UK is working with Breast Cancer Care, Anthony Nolan and the Movember Foundation to reach their  collective goal to transform the lives of millions affected by cancer. Each charity is stocking Unity Bands in their own colours with funds raised going towards their life saving research or support services.

Wear your Unity Band on 4 February.

By wearing a Unity Band you are part of the generation that will transform the lives of millions of people affected by cancer.

1 in 2 people born after 1960 in the UK will be diagnosed with some form of cancer in their lifetime but, with the life changing advances in research over the last 40 years, survival has doubled.

Today, 2 in 4 people survive their cancer for at least 10 years. Cancer days ambition is to accelerate progress so that within 20 years, 3 in 4 people survive their cancer.
