In July, an average of 11,181 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer. No one asks for cancer, so we’re asking Aussies to help, and go Dry this July to raise funds for people affected by cancer.
Funds raised through Dry July go towards cancer support organisations across Australia, to help improve patient comfort, care and wellbeing.

National Recovery Month (Recovery Month, September 2017, USA) is a national observance held every September to educate Americans that substance use treatment and mental health services can enable those with a mental and/or substance use disorder to live a healthy and rewarding life.
Recovery Month celebrates the gains made by those in recovery, just as we celebrate health improvements made by those who are managing other health conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, asthma, and heart disease. The observance reinforces the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, prevention works, treatment is effective, and people can and do recover.
