Cancer's & Their Months/Colours

Post by McBlair on January 30th 2016, 10:21 am

So, Cancer is one of the most known diseases in the world. Cancer is known to be a killer and and it has no cure.
What some of you might not have known is each cancer has it's own awareness month, and yes some share months. Although, the highest commercially used month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October) and that's why I never knew any other cancer had it's own month.

Here is a list of each cancer with their repective months and colours:

January
Cervical Cancer Awareness (Teal)

February
Gallbladder & Bile Duct Cancer Awareness (Green)

March
Colorectal Cancer Awareness (Brown)
Kidney Cancer Awareness (Orange)
Multiple Myoma Cancer Awareness (Burgundy)

April
Testicular Cancer Awareness (Violet)
Esophageal Cancer Awarness (Periwinkle)
Head & Neck Cancer Awareness (Ivory & Burgundy)

May
Melanoma Cancer Awareness (Black)
Skin Cancer Awareness (Orange)
Brain Cancer Awareness (Gray)

June
National Cancer Survivor Month!!! (Purple)

July
Sarcoma Cancer Awareness (Gold)
Bladder Cancer Awareness (Yellow)

August
None

September
Childhood Cancer Awareness (Gold)
Leukemia Awareness (Orange)
Lymphoma Awareness (Lime Green)
Ovarian Cancer Awareness (Teal)
Prostate Cancer Awareness (Light Blue)
Thyroid Cancer Awareness (Teal, Pink, Blue)

October
Breast Cancer Awareness (Pink)
Liver Cancer Awareness (Green)

November
Pancreatic Cancer Awareness (Purple)
Lung Cancer Awareness (Pearl)
Stomach Cancer Awareness (Periwinkle)
Carcinoid Cancer Awareness (Zebra Print)
Caregivers Month!!! (Plum)

December
None

Why am I doing this you may ask? I've have family members with some of these cancers. And I figure, why not post this to spread awareness of all the cancers. Even if it's just within this small community!
