– type 2 diabetes

The World Cancer Day campaign ‘I Am and I Will’ encourages supporters to reflect on what they can do to reduce the impact of cancer for themselves, their community and the wider world. This theme serves as a powerful reminder that we all have a positive role to play in creating a world without cancer.
For those experiencing liver cancer, their World Cancer Day message may be ‘I am a survivor and I will inspire others’ or ‘I am experiencing liver cancer and I will spread the word about liver health.’ Whoever you are, your actions – big and small – can make lasting, positive change.
