Cancer awareness bracelets have become one of the major tools to promote awareness about the disease. There are a lot of awareness bracelets but the ones spreading awareness about cancer are clearly the most popular ones.
Breast cancer is an increasing problem in the United States and other parts of the world. Each year, the number of women suffering from this disease keeps on increasing. The promising thing about breast cancer is that if treated in time, it can often lead to a 100% cure rate. Cancer awareness organizations have been faced with this basic problem. Being aware of the symptoms and testing for those that are most susceptible to the disease can greatly improve ones survival rate.
However in many cases, lack of awareness can lead to unnecessary suffering from some sort of cancer. This is the reason why many charities have taken to using cancer awareness bracelets.
The Live Strong Foundation, with their yellow rubber bracelets, was one of the first charities that brought forth the awareness created by these bracelets. Gradually awareness about cancer began to increase and later, pink rubber bracelets became the sign of breast cancer the world over.
These bracelets are very stylish and help to raise awareness about breast cancer. They also raise thousands of dollars for their organizations each month.
The worst thing about cancer is that anybody anywhere can have it. Nobody is immune to the disease. You can have the healthiest of past generations and yet fall prey to this dreaded disease. This is why it is important to be aware of this disease, and support research for a cure.
There are a variety of materials in which cancer awareness bracelets are made. The most common are the silicone rubber bracelets that sell for as little as $1 each. But if you want pearls or cat’s eye in your bracelet, it is going to cost much more. Then the cost of the bracelet will increase to $30. It will increase the cost of the bracelet but the best thing about this is that you can also wear it as jewelry in different parties!
In fact, custom made awareness bracelets also contain messages regarding many other diseases. These messages can be of endurance, hope or of success. Most of the time one finds the family members and friends of the struggling person wearing cancer awareness bracelets to support him or her.
