How To Support Blood Cancer Awareness Month?
Blood Cancer Awareness Month Wristbands
September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month. It was designated by Congress in 2010, and since then, it has played a big role in raising awareness of blood cancers in children and adults. With many different organizations posting educational pieces on social media, hosting events, and reaching out to survivors and families
What Are Blood Cancers?
There are several types of blood cancer, including leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma. Leukemia is found in the blood and bone marrow, lymphoma impacts the lymphatic system, and myeloma is a cancer of the plasma cells. According to the American Society of Hematology, all of these cancers prevent the blood from performing important functions like fighting infection. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society reports that, every three minutes, someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with a blood cancer, and, in 2016, blood cancers are expected to cause the deaths of nearly 60,000 people.
Use Wristbands for Blood Cancer Awareness Month
Given the vast number of people impacted by blood cancers, it’s imperative that we find a cure, which will take much research and donations. There are many great organizations to support; one way to raise funds for them is by selling Blood Cancer Awareness Month wristbands. These 100% silicone bands are latex-free and can be fully customized to reflect the mission of Blood Cancer Awareness Month. For example, they can be created in the color of your chosen blood cancer organization and they can have artworks such as blood droplets imprinted on them. You can also add unique messages like “Someday is today” or “Fight blood cancer” or "Lymphoma Awareness".
