Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month

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 about these cancers. This year is no different. We are encouraging our 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!

  • Use hashtags #GCAM, #IWishIKnew, #EndWomensCancer, and #GynCancer in related social media posts focused on bringing awareness about gynecologic cancer.
  • Write or share social media posts about recognizing the symptoms of gynecologic cancers 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.
  • Register for the National Race to End Women’s Cancer on Nov. 4, 2018, in Washington, D.C. Even if you’re unable to participate you can still donate and be an #EverydaySuperhero!
  • Follow FWC’s FacebookTwitter and Instagram pages as the FWC shares inspiration, information and fun throughout the month.
  • Share this graph about the different types of gynecologic cancer on social media.5_gynocancers
  • Download a GCAM Fast Facts sheet about the different types of cancer.
  • Print out our GCAM posters for your office.
  • September is also Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month (OCAM)! Advocates, survivors and medical staff are encouraged to share messages about what you want the public to know about ovarian cancer using #IWishIKnew.
