Today is World Cancer Day 2015, which is taking place under the tagline “Not beyond us”.

In the case of blood cancer, this tagline is particularly poignant. As Anthony Nolan explain: “The cure for blood cancer isn’t in a lab, or a petri dish. It isn’t a pill or a powder… it’s YOU.”

By donating your blood stem cells, you can save a life.

But as they say: “you can’t win the lottery, without first buying a ticket !” and in much the same way: to stand the chance of saving a life, first you need to join the stem cell (also known as bone marrow) register.

Donating isn’t difficult, neither is joining the register. But it is urgent. So be the cure.

Find out how to join the register by clicking here.

And then, encourage Just One More to do the same.

One of the most visible events marking World Cancer Day in the United States will be in New York, where the Empire State Building will be lit blue and orange for the fifth year in a row. The colours are those of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), which organizes World Cancer Day

World Cancer Day 2015

Taking place under the tagline ‘Not beyond us’, World Cancer Day 2015 will take a positive and proactive approach to the fight against cancer, highlighting that solutions do exist across the continuum of cancer, and that they are within our reach.

The campaign will explore how we can implement what we already know in the areas of prevention, early detection, treatment and care, and in turn, open up to the exciting prospect that we can impact the global cancer burden – for the better.

World Cancer Day is a unique opportunity to raise awareness that there is much that can be done at an individual, community and governmental level, to harness and mobilise these solutions and catalyse positive change.

By moving forward together we have the potential to show: Cancer. It is not beyond us.
