“Kiss Away Cancer” raises cancer awareness

Members of Xi Delta Zeta and Cardinal Key came together to raise cancer awareness Tuesday and Thursday with the Kiss Away Cancer booth in the Student Center.

To commemorate national cancer prevention month, which takes place this February, club members handed out Hershey Kisses and cancer awareness ribbons to students.

According to cancer.org, the number of cancer related deaths in the U.S. in 2018 were projected to be 609,640, with 1,735,350 new cancer cases.

Since February is prevention month for all types of cancer, the two clubs are raising awareness on campus and reminding students that all cancers, no matter how rare, are important.  The clubs spread the word about cancer awareness by asking students to pledge to fight cancer and wear ribbon pins.

Xi Delta Zeta also used the opportunity to promote their upcoming Black Heart Black Tie dance, which will take place tonight at 9 p.m. in the Student Center Ballroom.
