‘Not beyond us’ is the tagline for World Cancer Day 2015.
This year the campaign’s goal is to highlight that we’re not powerless against cancer. The campaign underlines a proactive and positive approach to tackling the disease, stressing the following steps as our most powerful allies when it comes to fighting cancer:
- Healthy Life Choices. Getting regular exercise, adopting a consistently healthy diet, reducing alcohol intake, quitting smoking and managing stress – these are prime factors in reducing your health risk.
- Early Detection. Making sure you get those regular full medical check-ups (including at least one dental appointment every year) to pick up anything out of the ordinary. The earlier a problem is detected, the better your chances are for beating it. Find out more about Breast Cancer tests.
- Treatment for All and Quality of Life. This year, the campaign is also focusing on how cancer impacts the mental, emotional and physical wellbeing of patients, as well as their families and carers.
