Have you ever been diagnosed with cancer? Do you know anyone who has fought and recovered from some type of cancer? Have you lost a loved one to cancer? Nearly everyone can answer yes to at least one of these questions. This means efforts to raise awareness and mobilize people for the cause can have great success.
Cancer awareness bracelets are a great way to keep this important issue near the front of our minds. They can be used in connection with events such as 5k runs, or sold as a fund raiser. By sharing cancer bracelets with family and friends you remember those who struggle or have struggled to fight cancer. You can help raise money for research and to support families of people who have lost their battles with cancer. You can even help to add joy to the lives of children with terminal cancer.
