Oral, Head, and Neck Cancer Awareness Week (OHANCAW) is a week-long awareness event from May 8th through 15th. Oral, Head, and Neck Cancer includes cancer that arises in the head or neck region, including the nasal cavity, thyroid glands, salivary glands throat and larynx. It is currently the 6th most common form of cancer found within the United States with approximately 40,000 cases diagnosed every year. Raising awareness of cancer symptoms and treatment options is crucial because an estimated 60% of patients fail to see doctors until their disease have gone into advancecd stages, when chances of survival sharply diminish.
You can help raise awareness of these diseases by handing out great giveaways like promotional awareness bracelets, badges, buttons and lanyards that are imprinted with information on free clinics during OHANCAW. Custom shaped promotional refrigerator magnets and stress balls are also very effective reminders to get a checkup.
