We Can I Can: This is Everyone’s fight
Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide
World Cancer Day, February 4, 2017, is a day to reflect on how cancer affects everyone in different ways, and how everyone can be part of the effort to reduce the impact on individuals, families, and communities.
The commemorative day was established in 2000 as part of the World Summit Against Cancer for the New Millennium in Paris, France. It seeks to raise the global profile of cancer in the hope of promoting support and solidarity for cancer patients worldwide.
At Doppels we are dedicating our philanthropic efforts to the fight to eradicate Cancer. Our founder Matt Hagger is currently raising $100,000 that would benefit the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research and the proceeds from our Doppels On Deck concert series will benefit the My Wish List foundation a local nonprofit organization founded to enhance the lives of pediatric cancer patients and their loved ones during their treatment process.
There are also plenty of other ways for you to get involved . Take a look at the World Cancer Day Map of Impact for inspiration. For more on how to support the fight against cancer on World Cancer Day, visit the campaign website.
