September is Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month (GCAM). The Foundation for Women’s Cancer (FWC) knows the importance of bringing awareness to gynecologic cancers. After creating the month, each year the FWC strives to bring attention and share information about these cancers. This year is no different. We are encouraging survivors, patients, medical staff, advocates and friends to post messages about what they want the public to know about gynecologic cancers using #IWishIKnew throughout the month.
What you can do!
- Update your social media profile pictures with a GCAM frame.
- Use hashtags #GCAM, #IWishIKnew, #EndWomensCancer and #GynCancer in related social media posts focused on bringing awareness about gynecologic cancer.
- Share what you want people to know about gynecologic cancers using #IWishIKnew and the importance of being treated by a gynecologic oncologist if diagnosed.
- Share photos of #EndWomensCancer fundraising events or photos of advocates and survivors wearing purple, the designated color of gynecologic cancer awareness.
