Every year, a Health Awareness Calendar is created to be used as a tool to help fight against specific health conditions through the power of human connection. The purpose of the awareness months, weeks and days are to “rally us together to spread awareness and show support,” according to Healthline.
February 4, 2019, was World Cancer Day. Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the world today. Each cancer is named for the area in which they begin and the type of cell they are made of, even if they spread to other parts of your body. According to Healthline, there are also several clinical terms used for certain general types of cancer.
- Carcinoma – cancer that starts in the skin or the tissues that line other organs.
- Sarcoma – a cancer of connective tissues such as bones, muscles, cartilage and blood vessels.
- Leukemia – a cancer of bone marrow, which creates blood cells.
- Lymphoma and Myeloma – cancers of the immune system
