The fight for cancer awareness is an ongoing battle. Recently the Prostate Cancer Foundation have issued a range of light blue silicone wristbands to aid the fight. Available to buy online in packs of 10, 100% of the profits earned goes to prostate cancer research.
Celebrities at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards have been seen wearing wristbands and ribbons emblazoned with the ‘Time’s Up’ slogan. This has happened for the second year running with the first outing being black and white custom printed silicone wristbands.
You’ve probably seen them before. They’re small silicone bracelets that come in a variety of different colors. While many people wear this type of accessory, it seems that a lot of people still don’t understand their meaning.
These are cancer wristbands. They’re used to both help support cancer research and to help raise the awareness of certain types of cancer, some of which are more obscure than others.
Cancer. The very word inspires feelings of fear, dread and sadness. Many people will end up knowing one, or more, people who will eventually suffer from this disease. While not all cancers turn out to be fatal, the emotional and physical damage can often follow someone throughout their entire life.
Cancer is easily one of the most frightening diseases we face in our modern society. Part of what makes cancer such a worrisome problem is that there are so many different types. Many people are health conscious but it seems like there is little anyone can really do to avoid cancer completely.
Another aspect to this disease is that many elements of it remain a bit of a mystery to the scientific community.
