World Cancer Day:
February 4 is an extremely important day. Today we honor all heroes without capes. Cancer is a commonly found illness across the world. Moreover, it has affected everyone in one or another way. But the people who fought this illness and are still fighting are commendable. It takes immense courage to rage towards cancer with all will and gut. This day is to understand families affected by cancer. Furthermore, it is to inspire more people that one day we will live cancer-free.
The Union for International Cancer Control organized this day. The union has declared this day a holiday. It originally began to honor and remember families who were affected by cancer. Back in 2000, the Charter of Paris officially adapted to this day. February 4 raises awareness about cancer. Additionally, we understand in more depth what the disease is really about. This day is a ray of sunshine to look into the future. A future with lesser cases of cancer. Today was started to address how the services and cures have advanced. The history of this day tells us how collective action is required. Also, doctors are ensuring that all patients get appropriate medical attention.

On World Cancer Day, read and educate people around you. Furthermore, participate in campaigns. This will make you feel a part of the honorary movement. Also, today just sit with your family and talk about the stigma around cancer. You can participate in discussion forums. This will increase your awareness about the illness.

Thank a letter carrier:
Letters are emotions wrapped in envelopes. Moreover, we are lucky to have people who deliver these to
us. For time immemorial, letters have been a mode of communication. In the earlier years, people waited intently to hear from their loved ones. Well, today on February 4 you thank a letter carrier. Portray gratitude towards them. They work day and night to help you reach your loved ones through words.
The history of this day goes way back in time. The entire concept of mail began in Persia. People send emails to each other. This was their way to let each other know of their well-being. Moreover, this trend spread worldwide. Everyone soon began to write letters across countries. The letter goes through an entire journey. The postman is the one who completes this journey. Brings the whole circle to a complete end.
How to celebrate:
Simply walk down to your mailbox when you see a postman. Say thank you. Tell them how grateful you are for all their hard work. You can maybe offer them a beverage and be nice to them. You can also tell your relatives and friends about this day. The more people know, the more gratitude is spread. It is always nice to see a smile across people’s faces.
