While September marks the end of summer for many, it is also the time to raise awareness for a number of different types of cancers.
Many organizations celebrate awareness months as a way to focus attention on a particular disease with the hope of educating the public about that particular type of cancer, to generate interest for fundraising and volunteering purposes and to encourage people to explore screening options for cancer detection and prevention.
