Rep. Tom Rooney (R‐FL) has launched a resolution to denote July 17, 2010 as "National Bladder Cancer Awareness Day."

The first annual Bladder Cancer Awareness Day is designed to raise awareness of bladder cancer and its symptoms to help affected individuals seek prompt medical attention. More than two dozen volunteer‐directed events will take place nationally. Each event also will stage a forum for bladder cancer patients, survivors, and their caregivers to meet each other.

"Bladder cancer affects tens of thousands of American families, but it is highly treatable when diagnosed early," Rooney said. "As with many types of cancer, early detection is critical to treating and recovering from the disease."

The resolution was applauded by the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network (BCAN), a national advocacy organization aimed at improving public awareness of the disease.
