    World Lymphoma Awareness Day is held on September 15 every year and is a day dedicated to raising awareness of lymphoma, an increasingly common form of cancer.

      Sadly, Paul Allen helped in this regard. I must say that those in my world are pretty well aware of it - I don't seem to be able to shut up about it.

      PO, it's hard to think that there could be a person anywhere that wouldn't be "aware", isn't it? I routinely find people at any function/gathering I go to that don't know about some of the common things about cancer, of most any type. I seem to wind up talking and teaching at these functions myself.

      Cancer feels like it is everywhere to me. I am not sure if it is because I am oversensitized or because it really is all over. I am thinking mostly option b there.

      A lot of people just don't have a lot of knowledge anyway about cancer, unless the person with it is either themself, or someone very close to them. We need better education campaigns and support than what we currently have. Heck..... a lot of places are just barely starting up their palliative programs, and you'd think they'd have ironed that out years ago!
