Lung Cancer Bloggers Mark World Cancer Day 2016

World Cancer Day Graphic

Thursday, February 4, 2016, is World Cancer Day 2016 — a day to consider how WE CAN fight one of the world’s top killers.

We need everyone to have access to good healthcare. We need better understanding of cancer risk factors and ways to reduce them.  We need better screening and diagnostic tools.  We need better treatments, and at affordable cost.  We need to eliminate barriers to communication, information, and data sharing.  We need better funding and support for patients.

Worldwide, people will be tweeting, blogging and posting on social media about World Cancer Day about a variety of topics, such as the US White House’s new Cancer Moonshot initiative .  Twitter hashtags to watch are #WorldCancerDay and #WeCanICan.

One way to fight cancer is to share stories, information and data online.  Several lung cancer bloggers will take this day to share their thoughts about the connections they have made with others in the lung cancer community.  #LCSM Chat will curate the blogs by adding links to these posts below.

What will YOU do today to fight cancer?
