World Wish Day - April 29

In 1978, five-year-old boy Chris Greicius was diagnosed with stage 4 leukemia. Doctors said he had 3 more years to live and he told his mother he wanted to be a cop. In April 1980, officers in Phoenix, Arizona, heard about it and decided to make his dream come true. They had no charity or donations and they managed on their own to recruit a helicopter and take Chris to town to turn him into a cop. Young Chris was a police officer for one day on April 29, 1980. A few days later he was rushed to the hospital and died.
Other people who have heard about it thought that fulfilling wishes for sick children is a great idea. The Make-A-Wish Foundation was founded and has become one of the most well-known charities in the world. The foundation has since fulfilled dreams for more than 250,000 terminally ill children.

International Wig Day - March 10

 International Wig Day is a day celebrated once a year on March 10th. This special day is designed on the one hand to bring some fun into our lives with the costume game that can be done in our appearance by wearing different wigs, and at the same time also create awareness of hair loss problems caused by diseases and chemotherapy treatments.

The wig is part of a costume. Through the wig we can change our appearance. We can become as glamorous as a movie star, funny as a clown or just enjoy a hair look different than usual, more lush and more interesting, even perfect.

International Wig Day has been celebrated since 2016. A party accessory store called in Denmark has created this awareness day to support the fight against cancer and create awareness of the hair loss problems caused as a result and also to remind the world of the pleasure of wearing a wig on the head.

In order to create quality wigs, natural hair is needed, which is why many women and girls come to the rescue and donate their hair, which is cut in hairdressers and moved to wig factories to create wigs for cancer patients.

Hair loss is caused not only as a result of cancer but also from other diseases like alopecia areata, an inflammatory disease of the hair follicle that causes hair loss to the scalp.

The foreign wigs are also used by women in the Jewish ultra-Orthodox community, many of whom fulfill the obligation to cover their heads by wearing the wig.

For judges and lawyers in courts in many countries like England, USA and Australia curly white wig is a necessary part of the traditional outfit.

Wigs are also part of the appearance of drag queens who want to present a look of lush and stunning female hair.

There are also women who prefer to wear foreign wigs that look like natural hair to enjoy the look of lush hair, especially in cases where they suffer from thinning or damaged hair.

Dress in Blue Day - The first Friday in March

Dress in Blue Day was initiated by Anita Mitchell, an American teacher who recovered from stage 4 colon cancer but lost a close friend and her father to the disease.
Mitchell wanted to raise awareness for early detection of life-saving colon cancer. In 2006 she worked with her classmates on an idea for a day of illness recognition. They came up with the idea that instead of the regular uniforms that should be brought to school all year round, on the first Friday of March they could come in blue clothes of their choice, provided they donated one dollar to colon cancer research.

Subsequently, every March became the month of awareness of colon cancer awareness.
The idea of ​​dressing in blue on the first Friday in March to promote disease awareness became national in 2009. Anita introduced the idea to the Colon Cancer Association and they enthusiastically promoted it throughout the United States. A blue star was chosen as a symbol for the memory of people who died of colon cancer.
Early detection of colon cancer significantly increases the chance of recovery.
Colon cancer has no visible symptoms in the first two to three years of development, so it is recommended that anyone over the age of 50, the age at which the risk of the disease increases, do tests to detect the disease, such as a stool test and a routine colonoscopy. People who have symptoms of colon cancer are advised to get tested even if they have not reached the age of 50.

The symptoms of colon cancer are:
A change in bowel habits, such as diarrhea, soft and mucous bowel movements, constipation, a change in the diameter of the bowel which lasts for more than a few days. A feeling of lack of vacancy. Rectal bleeding or blood mixed with feces, the blood can be red or walnut and even prone to black. Abdominal pain. Weakness / anemia due to iron deficiency. Weight loss. These symptoms can also indicate the presence of other diseases, but it is recommended to be tested anyway when they appear.
To prevent the disease one must maintain a healthy lifestyle: avoid smoking and obesity, exercise and eat healthy.
In 2011, Carmen Mark Valvo, an American fashion designer, partnered with the Colon Cancer Committee to promote Blue Dress Day.

How to mark Dress in Blue Day?

First of all, wear blue clothes that everyone usually has in the closet and tell people the cause, to encourage them to read and get to know the disease and go get tested. You can donate to the Association for the War on Cancer, you can donate hair to cancer patients and most importantly, promote awareness of the disease to prevent its tragic consequences.
