World Cancer Day, held yearly on February 4th, is the global uniting initiative led by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC).

This year’s World Cancer Day theme, “Close the Care Gap”, is about uniting our voices and taking action.

While we live in a time of awe-inspiring advancements in cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment, many of us who seek cancer care hit barriers at every turn.

Income, education, geographical location and discrimination based on ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability and lifestyle are just a few factors that can negatively affect care.

Liver cancer is the fastest-growing cause of cancer-related deaths but it is also highly preventable.

Help close the cancer care gap this World Cancer Day by contributing to our donation fund. You’ll be helping to provide vulnerable Queenslanders with the tools and support needed to prevent liver cancer and improve liver health.
