You may have noticed that BlogF1 currently has a pink hue to it, a change from the regular grey and green that has adorned the site since May. The change is only temporary, so if the colours offend your eyes you need not worry. However, as with last year, BlogF1 has gone Pink For October. What does this mean? It means that the site is supporting the idea of expanding people’s knowledge about cancer.
Many sites around the web go pink to help raise awareness of cancer, and it is that awareness that is so important. Without knowledge, we humans are pretty much useless – some might say ignorance is bliss, but it’s too late to change that now. And while doctors and scientists around the world may be working hard to find a cure for the multitude of cancers, it is up to us to learn about them ourselves and learn how to protect ourselves.
Pink For October are publishing people’s stories and have some interesting facts on their various pages, and the UK’s leading cancer research charity has some indepth information aimed at all ages. Cancer Research UK can be found via this link.
