On this day, the different journeys of cancer victims is shared and these serve as reminders that each one has their own story, and their story is unique.
The theme for 2022 is “Close the care gap”.

This theme means that we all need to play a part in identifying and addressing barriers put in place for cancer patients, where they cannot access the care they need. Barriers as such can be described as, job security, basic healthcare accessibility because of financial stability, access to a fair education, etc.
