Even with modern medicine evolving more and more, the strength of human connection is one of the biggest tools that we have to fight health conditions. This is why awareness days, weeks and months are so important. They bring us together, spread knowledge and create support about a certain cause.
Around these periods there are usually also fundraising and educational projects that create empowerment and strength around a whole community. Even the people that surround someone with a health condition.
