    This year's World Cancer Day theme is "Close The Care Gap".

    Cancer is a disease that affects everyone. But very often, who we are and where we live determine the level and quality of the care we receive, not the care we need. And that’s why we’re working towards the common goal of creating a world where everyone has the same opportunity to enjoy the healthiest life possible.

    THIS YEAR THE MESSAGE IS: Are they really OK? Ask them today. Do you know how the people in your world are really going?

    Life's ups and downs happen to all of us. So chances are someone you know might be struggling. Your genuine support can make a difference whatever they are facing, big or small.

    So, don’t wait until someone’s visibly distressed or in crisis. Make a moment meaningful and ask them how they’re really going.

    Are they really OK? Ask them today. Your conversation could change a life.
