Prostate and lung cancer and epilepsy awareness month-Flowers for diseases

Models of Human Diseases ( has initiated the Flowers for disease project with monthly awareness campaigns dedicated to a diseases and a flower symbol! Each month pre-med or medical student team leaders of Models of Diseases create brochures and lead an awareness campaign for one disease. In November we increase awareness about Prostate Cancer, Lung Cancer, and Epilepsy. We acknowledge the support of Dr. Younes Leysi from BioImager for these campaigns.For prostate cancer the Tiger Lilly was chosen as the symbol of power but also fragility. For Lung cancer, the Candian cancer society that uses different ccolours of daffodils chose the white daffodil. The lavender flower, often a symbol of solitude is representative of the isolation many of those affected with epilepsy and seizure disorders often experience. If you want to support our campaign forward the brochure to friends and family, take pictures of flowers and share them and the brochure with a few words about Models of Diseases Flower for Diseases project. Thank you!In October we had Breast cancer awareness campaign and the beautiful pink rose as a symbol of women beauty and hope after having the brain tumour and its hope flower-the almond blossoms.
