World Cancer Day – Wednesday 4th February 2015

world cancer day2


World Cancer Day is a truly global event to unite the world’s population in the fight against cancer. Its aim is to raise awareness that there is much that can be done at an individual, community and governmental level, to harness and mobilise the solutions and catalyse positive change.

World Cancer Day is an initiative of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), a leading international non-governmental organisation that unites the cancer community to reduce the global cancer burden, to promote greater equity, and to integrate cancer control into the world health and development agenda. Please read more about UICC and World Cancer Day here.


MDS UK supports this important initiative and calls all our supporters to join in to mark World Cancer Day – and unite in MDS.

All you need to do is write #wewillunite onyour hand – MDS – and maybe the name of the person with MDS you are supporting.
Then please post this to us on
We will upload all photos to this webpage as a mark of support to all those battling MDS – those who survived MDS or those who sadly lost their life to MDS.

Below you can see some of the photos we’ve go already.
Lets – all together make a giant statement to mark this important day – and show how many people struggle with this almost invisible – but very difficult disease.
Show your support to one another – together we are stronger.
Thank you!
