Months of Awareness!

Awareness 1

Each month recognizes a different illness or cause. Most months actually acknowledge several as there are so many various illnesses that affect people all around the world. 

January is National Blood Donor Awareness.

February is American Heart Health Month.

March, MSAA, Multiple Sclerosis Association of America recognizes as Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month.

April is National Parkinson’s and Autism Month.

May is National American Stroke and Mental Health Month.

June, National Safety Month.

July is National Cleft and Craniofacial Awareness and Prevention Month.

August is National Immunization Awareness Month.

September is Pain Awareness and also National Sickle Cell Awareness Month. September is also National Alcoholic and Drug Addiction Recovery Month.

October is both National Breast Cancer and Domestic Violence Month.

November is National Alzheimer’s Disease and Family Caregiver Month.

December 1st is World AIDS Day.

I find it astonishing how many different illnesses or causes are acknowledged during the course of a year. Throughout the rest of this year, I would like to talk a little about each month’s awareness that is recognized because I think it will give all of us a little more knowledge on the subject. Now like I stated, there are multiple different acknowledgements so I probably can not touch on all of them each month, but I will choose the most either closest to my heart or not as well-known. 

I hope y’all had a great day today! I do not know about you, but I am SO happy tomorrow is Friday! It has been a very long week filled with many headaches and other pains. IFriday Eve hope that next week is going to be a better week with a lot less pain and stress. Of course as y’all already know, I do believe that a positive mind will bring much happiness and good days in the future. So I will continue to always stay positive because there is no room for negativity in my life! 

Thank y’all for stopping by today! Please let me know what you think of my plan for the rest of this year to talk about each awareness month! I always love hearing your feedback because your comments are so very interesting and helpful! I hope y’all have a great and relaxing evening. As always, I am sending you lots of love, comfort and warmth to those of you dealing with snow!

Love 2

Always, Alyssa

    • Thank you so much! I am trying to raise awareness of all illnesses during the month they are recognized. I will be doing some about mental health this month. I know mental health issues affect so many and so many do not address the issues out of fear of judgments. I really appreciate your comment and I hope you have a wonderful week!
