World Cancer Day – February 4
Today the world is uniting together in the fight against the growing global cancer epidemic.
World Cancer Day is a day dedicated to raising awareness and education about the disease, ultimately aiming to save millions of preventable deaths each year.
The team at Interite Healthcare Interiors holds this cause close to our hearts and aims to support this day with the continued support to the UICC Global Cancer Control and many of our local clients and organisations specialising in cancer research and treatments.
In support of this day, we hope to educate and raise awareness to all our readers.
