Social Media Toolkits

Lung Cancer Awareness Social Media Toolkit

November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month, a health campaign to increase awareness about lung cancer, symptoms and risk factors, screening guidelines and more.

Lung cancer is by far the leading cause of cancer death among both men and women, and has a high incidence rate. 1 in 15 men in Colorado and 1 in 17 women in Colorado will be diagnosed with lung cancer in their lifetime (up to age 85). Each year, more people die from lung cancer than of breast, colon, and prostate cancer combined, and close to 90% of those with known smoking status had a history of tobacco use. Informing all Coloradans of the magnitude of this disease, as well as the risks, can help save lives. Prevention and early detection are vital, and social media can aid in this awareness.

Breast Cancer Awareness Social Media Toolkit

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual international health campaign to increase awareness and raise funds for research and services for breast cancer causes and risk factors, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and a cure.

About 1 in 7 women in Colorado (Colorado Central Cancer Registry, 2017) will develop breast cancer in their lifetime, making it one of the most common forms of cancer. However, women aren’t the only ones who are affected, as men can also develop breast cancer. Informing all Coloradans of the risks and importance of screening can help save lives. Risk reduction and early detection are vital, and social media can aid in this awareness.
