This World Cancer Day, we celebrate the power of global solidarity in the fight against breast cancer. Breast cancer touches lives every day, and is the most common cancer in women worldwide—increasing particularly in developing countries where the majority of cases are diagnosed in late stages*. Whether going through a diagnosis, caring for someone who has been personally affected or simply wanting to know a world without this disease, each of us has the power to make a difference.

Our shared desire to defeat breast cancer unites us beyond measure and on this special day, we honor our partners, colleagues and friends from around the world who have joined us in taking action. View the gallery now.

Together, our actions can bring us closer,
to a world without breast cancer.
