The main objective behind this day is to help raise general awareness of all types of cancers and dispel any misconceptions.
It is also an opportunity to highlight what people can do in their everyday life to improve their health and prevent cancer.
This year's theme is ‘Debunking the myths'.
On this episode we ask: What does it really take to debunk the myths about cancer? And is cancer curable?
