Cancer awareness dates

Cancer awareness days, weeks and months are important in helping us to spread awareness and show support for people living with cancer. Learn more about the different types of cancers and symptoms to look out for, as well as how you can get involved in supporting the lives of people diagnosed with cancer in the UK.

Online Community: Cancer Awareness

Our Online Community is a place for people affected by cancer to chat to others, share experiences or vent emotions. On the Online Community news blog, we discuss important issues surrounding cancer and help raise awareness of all the different ways that cancer can affect life.
