    so a thank you to those researchers and medical geeks that have advanced cancer treatments over the years;

    a big thanks to those nurses and doctors caring for people with cancer;

    Thanks also to all the organisations and charities that support those affected by cancer and their families;

    Big up to those who have survived cancer

    and finally remember those who lost the fight with cancer.

    ..... a drink in all your honours :)

    I'll join you with that toast. It's taken my Da and my kid brother, but my Mam and I are making out OK.

    Never even heard of the "holiday" before today.
    Happy cancer day, I suppose...

    It is not a holiday per se, it is an awareness day. Like December 1st for example.

    Cheers, I've had a few family members and friends suffer from various cancers.

    And thank you for not mentioning a "cure for cancer." Such talk is a grave oversimplification of a complex multifactorial class of diseases.

    My wife and her father were battling cancer last year. Sadly her father did not win his battle.
