WHY CANCER

This year alone, 15 million people were diagnosed with cancer worldwide. In only 15 years (2030), this number will skyrocket to 22 million. That’s an increase of 47%.

By joining the global #NoHairSelfie movement and shaving your head actually or virtually on World Cancer Day, you are demonstrating your support for those undergoing cancer treatment and helping to conquer cancer by raising awareness and funds.





UNDERSTANDING CANCER

We now know that cancer is a disease of our genes caused by changes (mutations) in genes and/or how they are regulated. We also know that our immune systems try – but often fail – to control cancer. We have developed technologies to help us find cancers earlier because we know that, if detected early, a significant proportion of cancers can be treated effectively, with surgery, radiotherapy or chemotherapy. However, cancer remains an extremely complex disease, and more research is needed.

We have learned more about cancer in the past 30 years than ever before.

Thanks to research, and generous people like you who support it.

WORLD CANCER DAY

A truly global event that takes place every year on February 4, World Cancer Day unites the world in the fight against cancer. It aims to save millions of preventable deaths each year by raising awareness and education about the disease, pressing governments and individuals across the globe to take action.

World Cancer Day is a chance to reflect on what you can do to help conquer cancer.

As part of the #NoHairSelfie movement, there’s lots you can do:

  • Sign up to shave your head, actually or virtually, and post your #NoHairSelfie on World Cancer Day to help raise awareness & funds for the cause
  • Join as a team and work together to raise money & plan a fun event where you shave your heads on World Cancer Day
  • Get your school, your workplace, or your company involved - many heads are better than one!
