Cancer Awareness in 2023: Calendar of Monthly Observances and Ribbon Colors

Editor’s note: This blog post was medically reviewed by Carol DerSarkissian, MD.

Individuals affected by cancer deserve daily support and advocacy. Throughout the years, cancer groups assign different months and ribbon colors to represent various cancers in an effort to consistently empower and provide activism to those touched by the disease.

By understanding cancer awareness months and their corresponding ribbon colors, individuals can show their support for those affected by cancer and raise awareness about the importance of early detection and prevention.

The Ezra full-body scan is one option for early detection. By looking for warning signs of potential cancer in up to 13 organs, the scan can help catch cancer earlier, making it easier to beat.

This article provides a comprehensive resource for healthcare teams and individuals looking to get involved in cancer awareness and advocacy efforts.

We’ve also created a downloadable cancer awareness month calendar that you can find at the end of this post.
