"Not beyond us" - this is the motto of World Cancer Day 2015. It means that the knowledge we have collected about cancer already contains a lot of solutions that we can and should use in the battle against the deadly disease.
The call addresses the areas of prevention, early detection, treatment and care. It expresses the hope to mitigate the global cancer burden or to even come to grips with it. Individuals, society and politics are able to do a lot to achieve a change for the better by using the information about cancer we already have.
