Michigan Cancer Consortium
Monthly Cancer Awareness Calendar

This theme calendar will keep you informed about designated cancer-related observations and help you plan educational and outreach activities around them. It is our hope that the calendar and its cancer-related theme observations will lead to sustained activities to address MCC topics of interest, much the same way the designation of Breast Cancer Awareness Month has led to regular activities in the area of breast cancer awareness each October.
