September is both Prostate Cancer and Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month. All across the country, people are doing things to support the two causes. WWE has been doing a promotion by working with Connor’s Cure, a foundation for pediatric cancer awareness, and that is just the tip of the iceberg.
The Georgia Bulldogs will be the next organization to support these two awareness causes. According to College Spun, the Bulldogs will be wearing special helmet stickers that support both of the causes.
The Bulldogs will be doing this to honor former SEC Commissioner Mike Slive. Slive is a survivor of prostate cancer and he will be in attendance at the game as the team will recognize him prior to the South Carolina game.
The other sticker is for Henry Shepard, an Athens native and son of Georgia graduates. He is also a cancer survivor, but of Osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer. Shepard received his final chemotherapy treatment in early August and is now home recovering.
I’m sure some of the other college football programs will join in the support of this cause, especially the LSU Tigers. LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron was diagnosed with prostate cancer less than three weeks ago.
