White Out Cancer
Established by the Cancer Research Institute, #WhiteOutCancer Day is a day-long fundraising and awareness event on June 12, 2015, where individuals wear white in support of Cancer Immunotherapy Month™.
Immunotherapy has the potential to help patients with almost any type of cancer. White, therefore, stands for all the cancer awareness ribbon colors combined. White also stands for support for scientists and clinicians in their white coats who work every day to discover new treatments and bring them to patients. White also represents the immune system itself (“white blood cells”). Ultimately, white represents new hope and new beginnings for patients for whom conventional cancer treatments aren’t enough.
How Can You Participate?
Anyone can participate in #WhiteOutCancer.
All you need to do is gather family, friends, co-workers (and pets!) and wear anything that is white--white T-shirts, white jeans, white hats, white socks, white shoes.
Take a selfie and share it on social media, using the hashtag #WhiteOutCancer
