World Cancer Day

February 4 is World Cancer Day. It’s a day when we strive to raise awareness of cancer in hopes of eradicating it altogether – and this year, the focus is on revealing the truth behind damaging myths about cancer. The more facts we know about cancer, the better we can prevent it.

One shocking fact: each year, 7.6 million people die of cancer. Many of those deaths are preventable, and the more we know about cancer, the better we can fight it. We encourage you to arm yourself with knowledge by visiting the World Cancer Day website and share what you learn there.

Our hearts are with each and every family that has lost a loved one to cancer, and we wish strength and healing to those who are living with cancer today.

About Linnea

I joined in 2000 as an obituary writer. In the years since, I've done a little of everything for our Operations team, from content review to customer service to creating web pages for funeral homes to training new employees to my current position, Content Manager. I love this position, because I get to write little bits & longer pieces - whatever's needed at the moment - and I get to proofread a lot, satisfying my inner nitpicker. And I love being on the blog team, because I get to write interesting features for the blog. I love to write! In my spare time, I... can you guess?... write. I'm hoping that one day I can add "published novelist" to my bio. I also enjoy working in my vegetable garden and cooking, baking, canning, making ice cream, and pretty much anything else in the kitchen. I love to read, compete in trivia contests, and attempt to keep up with my Netflix queue.
