WE DON'T NEED TO TALK ABOUT CANCER
Whilst cancer can be a difficult topic to address, particularly in some cultures and settings, dealing with the disease openly can improve outcomes at an individual, community and policy level.
THERE ARE NO SIGNS OR SYMPTOMS OF CANCER
For many cancers, there are warning signs and symptoms and the benefits of early detection are indisputable.
THERE IS NOTHING I CAN DO ABOUT CANCER
There is a lot that can be done at an individual, community and policy level and with the right strategies; a third of the most common cancers can be prevented.
I DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT TO CANCER CARE
All people have the right to access proven and effective cancer treatments and services on equal terms, and without suffering hardship as a consequence.
