Did You know that April is National Health Awareness month

What Health.com suggests: " National awareness holidays and national health observances are special days, weeks, or months dedicated to raising awareness about important health topics. Observances like Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and Sickle Cell Awareness Month help amplify stories and rally support for the kids who need it the most.

Awareness months, weeks and days help bring a greater understanding of illnesses and issues that affect children. Awareness days and observances are a great time to fundraise, spread the word or reach out to friends or family members who are facing a diagnosis or illness."
