From The Max Foundation website:

The time is ripe for cancer care to become a global priority.

At The Max Foundation, we can already feel the momentum building towards positive change in a way that we are confident will improve the lives of those affected by cancer. Now there is an opportunity to let your voice be heard around the world by signing the International Union Against Cancer (UICC)’s World Cancer Declaration.

Everyday, the voices of survivors living with cancer and their caregivers gets louder because of the International Union Against Cancer (UICC)’s World Cancer Declaration. After you sign, be sure to tell a friend or loved one about this important initiative!
