DUBAI, United Arab Emirates--()--Dubai Airports demonstrated its support for global cancer awareness today by unveiling the world’s largest cancer awareness ribbon on an air traffic control tower at Dubai International as part of a major global campaign under the theme “Early Detection Saves Lives!” The massive ribbon, made in 24 colours to represent all types of cancer – measures 128 feet in length and 60 feet across, and spans nearly the entire height of the ATC tower. Launched under the patronage of H.H.
