The Many Faces of Advocacy

Wednesday, August 31, 2016

Each year, as summer turns into fall, the cancer community begins a period of awareness, as many cancer awareness months and observances occur in September, October and November. Here at the Cancer Support Community, we wanted to use this opportunity to bring awareness to the importance of advocacy for everyone touched by cancer. That’s why we’re launching our Many Faces of Advocacy campaign. Over the next three months, we will try to demystify advocacy and explain all the different ways anyone can be a cancer advocate.
