World Rose Day – 22nd September
Observed every year on this day in the memory of Melinda Rose (who suffered with cancer but fought it in great spirit till her last breathe) to spread awareness how to fight cancer cheerfully keeping hope alive.
Rose day is observed to let all cancer patients aware that they can face the disease with strong willpower and spirit. Alertness about cancer is important not only for supporting the patients, but also to prevent it. Awareness programs on this day also make normal people feel the importance of being cautious about cancer.
Theme for 2020: “Changing the Way We Look at Cancer.”
