To that extent, World Cancer Day, which falls on every February 4, is seen by those engaged in the campaign to prevent or find a cure for it, as a powerful opportunity to speak out, to call for action, to listen to cancer patients and their families, and to give them a voice.

With Samoa and the world marking World Cancer Day today, we are reminded of the efforts of those who have survived this dreaded disease and lived to tell their story.
