15 Ways To Honor World Cancer Day 2022

15 Ways To Honor World Cancer Day 2022

World Cancer Day 2022 is February 4th, so I thought I would share 15 ways you can honor and support people impacted by cancer.

If you’re unfamiliar with World Cancer Day, it “was born on the 4 February 2000 at the World Summit Against Cancer for the New Millennium in Paris.

The Paris Charter aims to promote research, prevent cancer, improve patient services, raise awareness and mobilise the global community to make progress against cancer, and includes the adoption of World Cancer Day.” (Source: World Cancer Day website)

The theme for World Cancer Day 2022 is “close the care gap” and, as always, the website has a variety of materials (e.g., toolkits, posters, and infographics) to support your efforts in spreading the world about the impact cancer has on communities across the world.

Handmade Goods That Help Cancer Patients

A theme that addresses “closing the care gap” may seem like something geared towards larger organizations actively working within the healthcare community.

There is a place for makers as well, though.

In almost every state in the US, there is a small nonprofit in need of some of your handmade goodness.

To get you started, here are some breast cancer support nonprofits and here are three nonprofits that need port pillows.

So, if crafting things by hand is how you like to support family, friends, and the community then the list of 15 DIY projects for cancer patients below will provide several fun options for you in 2022.
