Throughout the year, various agencies support a variety of initiatives to raise awareness and understanding of key health issues. Awareness weeks and months are meant to a fun way to engage the public in important health information.
October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pink was everywhere, although sadly my long standing offer of free breast exams was a bit of a bust. <*snicker*> I still think “Save the Tatas” has the right blend of humor and awareness in their message. Cancer isn’t funny, but you have to have a sense of humor to survive.
This month, it’s the guys turn. Movember helps raise awareness for prostate cancer.
