World Cancer Day 2021

The power of social media means that each of us have the opportunity to connect with more and more people as we share and exchange ideas and information. On World Cancer Day, social media helps to carry our messages so that all of our voices can be heard and amplified to raise awareness, improve education and inspire action.

How to Get involved

By sharing your own opinions, stories, and concerns about cancer on social media, you’re helping to create a wider and deeper conversation so that we can continue to build understanding around the issues in cancer, mobilise support and keep cancer at the top of the health agenda.

Let’s unite online. By tagging your posts with the official hashtags, supporters around the world can follow the conversations happening on social media.
