By Memorial Healthcare System, Special to EyesOnNews.com – Today is World Cancer Day with the emphasis on dispelling the myths about this disease. Several doctors at Memorial Healthcare System are seen on the video helping to separate fact from fiction.
World Cancer Day 2014 (4 February 2014) focuses on Target 5 of the World Cancer Declaration: Reduce stigma and dispel myths about cancer, under the tagline “Debunk the myths”.
World Cancer Day is a chance to raise our collective voices in the name of improving general knowledge around cancer and dismissing misconceptions about the disease. From a global level, we are focusing our messaging on the four myths above. In addition to being in-line with our global advocacy goals, these overarching myths leave a lot of flexibility for members, partners and supporters to adapt and expand on for their own needs.
