There are many empowering cancer awareness campaigns that truly exude condolence and empowerment towards those who suffer with a disease. Whether directly or indirectly affected, it is important to be aware and educated on the disease.

A great way to educate people is through a spokesperson who is either living with the illness or who has survived it. While some advertisements can be tearjerkers, there are other approaches that find humor and positivity wonderfully helpful tools to be used in empowering cancer awareness campaigns.

Some ads are geared towards children through dolls and educational toys, while other are strictly factual and will be better appreciated by a more mature audience. PSAs and social media are able to aid in the increased awareness of cancer, providing insights on how to help fight and prevent this illness.
