World Cancer Day celebrated on February 4th all over the world. World Cancer Day is a day that was created to raise awareness about cancer and to encourage people to prevent and detect it, as well as to continue to search for new treatments for it.

In an interview with Dominica Vibes, Public Relations Officer of the Dominica Cancer Society, Vinnia Royer says people should be aware of the growing incidents of cancer around the world.

“On 4th February, 2019 the Dominca Cancer Society will observe World Cancer Awareness Day with a church service at the Methodist Church and we also have address by our president,” Royer said.

Royer said cancer is a disease that everyone should be aware of.

” Cancer is a purge and people need to be aware of  cancer and do everything to prevent the growing cases of cancer,”Royer noted.
