Scare Away Cancer week is off to a Boo-ming start.
On Monday, Xi Delta Zeta (a local sorority at CSC) had a booth set up in the student center. We gave out information and ribbons to raise awareness for ovarian and cervical cancer. Over 21,000 people were diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2015.
Today and every other day this week we will have a booth set up to help inform our student body of the many cancers that effect thousands of people every year.
Today we are raising awareness for Prostate Cancer. Tonight we are also hosting a movie night. We will be playing Hocus Pocus and The Fault in Our Stars. On Wednesday we will be handing out ribbons for lung cancer. Orange ribbons will be handed out on Thursday to promote awareness for Leukemia and kidney cancer. Thursday night, Xi Delta Zeta will be hosting Where’s Casper? (a scavenger hunt around campus). Awareness will be raised for brain cancer on Friday. Before the Pink Out football game the sorority will be doing face paint and asking for free will donations to go to Make A Wish Foundation. We will also be handing out pink ribbons to promote awareness for breast cancer awareness.
Planning for this week has really opened my eyes up to how many people are effected by so many types of cancer. I am glad that Xi Delta Zeta has a chance to raise awareness for a few cancers and raise money for a great cause.
