LIVER CANCER CAMPAIGN comes to New York City!
The American Liver Foundation (ALF) has announced a special educational campaign commemorating October as Liver Cancer Awareness Month. Sponsored by Bayer and Onyx Pharmaceuticals, the campaign features vibrant, eye catching ads on New York City taxis, subways and buses! The ads urge people at risk for liver cancer to speak to their doctor. Risk factors for liver cancer include Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Fatty Liver Disease, excessive Alcohol Consumption and certain Metabolic Diseases. For more information about liver cancer visit their Disease Information page.
Be on the lookout for the ads!
The campaign rolled out on October 13th, and will continue into late November. If you see one of their ads, please take a photo and send it to them! You can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. And, in return they’ll send you a Liver Life Walk tee-shirt!
