May, as it turns out, is Bladder Cancer Awareness Month. First up on the list of events to help us remember and fight the disease is the Bladder Cancer Awareness Network (BCAN) Virtual Walk to End Bladder Cancer on 5/1. The focus is, of course, fundraising to help stop the disease. With a goal of raising $300,000, everyone who raises $100 or more will receive the 2021 walk t-shirt. Click HERE to register or donate.
In addition to the fundraiser, BCAN has planned their Beacon of Hope Award to recognize those who” go the extra mile to inspire hope and make an impact.” Voting for the candidates is open online. The award will be presented during a free May 26 Ask the Experts program (registration required). You can find more information on all events and the fight against bladder cancer on their website listed here at the RESOURCES page.
