Sarcoma Awareness Month
In order to display our support for yet another important cause, we decided to publish an informational post for our online audiences to see in order to help them better understand what Sarcoma is & the impact it has on families around the word.
Sarcoma is a rare form of cancer, which can develop anywhere in the body. It impacts the lives of 15 people in the UK each day & around 40 million people globally each year. We felt inclined to show our support because despite this form of cancer being very rare, it still effects the lives of millions of people daily. DNA mutilations in soft tissue sarcoma are common. However, they’re usually acquired during life rather than inherited before birth. Acquired mutations may be the result of expose to radiation or cancer-causing chemicals. In the majority of sarcomas, they occur for no reason at all.
We decided to post about Sarcoma Awareness as it is a less commonly acknowledged form of cancer. As we do for multiple charities/organisations, we wanted to create awareness & spread the world, in an attempt to educate our audience & hopefully divert viewers to donate towards research & finding a cure for this illness.
Yellow ribbons show support to Sarcoma. The colour yellow often represents happiness. The choice of yellow is also related to the plant, sunflower. The sunflower became a symbol for Sarcoma Awareness as various cultures associate the brightly coloured plant with faith, strength & happiness. This could be interpreted as a gentle nod towards the strong-willed fighters of Sarcoma and their resistance to allow the illness take over their lives.
