Cancer Awareness Messaging

The Iowa Cancer Consortium and partners like the American Cancer Society and Iowa Department of Public Health, are pleased to provide a simple way for individuals and organizations to share important and accurate cancer awareness information.

These pre-written message sets are in a downloadable Word document, so sharing the messages is as simple as cutting and pasting into social media, newsletters, emails, websites, or any other form of communication. The messages are appropriate for individuals, businesses, and organizations. 

Please feel free to use and distribute freely!
