PSA: Reminder September is Gynecological Cancer Awareness Month

September is the national awareness month for  gynecological cancers, and ovarian cancer is usually  the most stand out cancer associated with this month  an is represented by the Teal Ribbon.  Black Women Stand Up continues its Cancer Awareness Initiative focused on GYN & Breast Cancers.  Our Love Your Va-Jay-Jay Day Initiative was started this past April on the 10th of the month, where we bring attention to GYN/Breast cancers with a focus on Uterine Cancer, encouraging women to #CheckUpOnIt.

September is right around the six month mark from April so we urge women to continue to be proactive with regards to their health. Remember early detection is the key.

Ladies we encourage you to #CheckUpOnIt and stay healthy!

#BWSU Family Presents its Cancer Memorial Wall

The end of April marked the finale of National Cancer Control and Minority Health Month, but our initiative surrounding cancer awareness continues.  Check out the’s Cancer Memorial Wall, where we pay homage to women of color who have lost their fight against cancer.  These women are no longer with us in the physical but  their spirits live on; if you would like to honor a love one who has transitioned on due to one of the gynecological/breast cancers we would love to add their picture to the wall.

For more information on how to add your loved one to the Cancer Memorial Wall email us at, to view wall visit:
