Month Calendar For United States Holidays September 2014

  • National Hispanic Heritage Month[pro]: To honor the achievements of Hispanics in America, the Congress by Public Law 100-402, as amended, has authorized and requested the President to issue annually a proclamation designating September 15 through October 15 as "National Hispanic Heritage Month". According to the Presidential Proclamation,
    Throughout our history, our Nation has been enriched by the storied pasts of all who call the United States of America home. America's Hispanic community has woven unique threads into the diverse fabric of our country and played an important role in shaping our national character as a people of limitless possibility. This month, let us honor their distinct heritage while reaffirming our commitment to enabling them to build a future bright with hope and opportunity for themselves, their families, and the country we love.
    • National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month[pro]: September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. This month is an opportunity to remember the many children who have passed away because of this illness, and to extend our support to all those who continue to battle it with incredible strength and courage. Accoding to the Presidential Proclamation,
      Pediatric cancer affects thousands of young Americans each year. It is the leading cause of disease-related death for children, and this year, more than 10,000 of our Nation's youth will be diagnosed with this tragic disease. Every September, America honors all those who have been affected by this life-threatening illness: young girls and boys whose childhoods have been cut short, the loved ones who know the pain pediatric cancer causes, and the communities across our country that rally to support their friends and neighbors during difficult times. As a Nation, we come together to stand with those who have experienced devastating loss, and we renew our commitment to advance research, improve treatment, and ensure a brighter, healthier future for all young Americans.
      • National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month[pro]: September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. According to the Presidential Proclamation,
        Ovarian cancer is the most deadly of all female reproductive system cancers. Nearly 22,000 Americans are diagnosed with this cancer every year, and about 14,000 die from it. The lives of mothers and daughters will be taken too soon, and the pain of this disease will touch too many families. During National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, we honor the loved ones we have lost to this disease and all those who battle it today, and we continue our work to improve care and raise awareness about ovarian cancer.
        • National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month[pro]: During this month, we recognize the strength and resolve of the individuals who have committed to recovery and we urge those still under the addiction of alcohol and drugs that a better life is possible. According to the Presidential Proclamation,
          Each day, millions of Americans take courageous steps toward recovery from alcohol and drug addiction. Their examples reveal the transformative power of recovery, and their stories provide hope to those struggling to break free from addiction. During National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month, we celebrate their strength, challenge the stigmas that stand as barriers to recovery, and encourage those needing help to seek it.
          This year is the 25th annual National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month.
          • National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month[pro]: This month is an opportunity to call attention to the need of moving toward healthier lifestyles and brighter futures for the children. According to the Presidential Proclamation,
            Over the past several decades, childhood obesity has become a serious public health issue that puts millions of our sons and daughters at risk. The stakes are high: if we do not solve this problem, many among America's next generation will face diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and other health problems associated with obesity. Thankfully, while more remains to be done, we are making real progress toward a healthier future for our children. During National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, we rededicate ourselves to meeting that critical responsibility.
            • National Wilderness Month[pro]: On this month, we reflect on the profound influence of the great outdoors on our lives and our national character, and we recommit to preserving them for generations to come. According to the Presidential Proclamation,
              In September 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Wilderness Act into law, recognizing places "where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain."Throughout our history, countless people have passed through America's most treasured landscapes, leaving their beauty unmarred. This month, we uphold that proud tradition and resolve that future generations will trek forest paths, navigate winding rivers, and scale rocky peaks as visitors to the majesty of our great outdoors.
              • National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month[pro]: This month is a time to raise awareness about prostate cancer, and to remember those we have lost to this disease. According to the Presidential Proclamation,
                Every year, America pauses to raise awareness of prostate cancer and reaffirm our resolve to defeat it. One of the most common cancers among American men, prostate cancer will kill more than 27,500 of our Nation's fathers, husbands, sons, and brothers this year, and more than 220,000 Americans will be diagnosed with it in 2015 alone. With each diagnosis comes pain and heartache, and for too many it leads to extreme hardship and unimaginable loss. As a country, we stand with all those who are fighting prostate cancer, their families, and every person who knows the challenges it brings, and we renew our commitment to combating this devastating disease.
                • National Preparedness Month[pro]: This month is a call to remember past disasters and to take steps to protect our loved ones and our communities before disaster strikes. According to the Presidential Proclamation,
                  Every year, communities across our country face emergencies -- from unforeseen natural disasters to deliberate acts -- that test our Nation's grit and challenge us to overcome tragedy. [...] Together, we can protect our families and help our communities by planning for emergencies and for the unexpected. Every September, we celebrate our Nation's spirit of resilience by rededicating ourselves to the important task of being prepared in the face of any crisis.
                  • Sickle Cell Anemia Awareness Month[oh-sp]: The month of September is designated as "Sickle Cell Anemia Awareness Month."
                    • Leukemia, Lymphoma, and Myeloma Awareness Month[oh-sp]: The month of September is designated as "Leukemia, Lymphoma, and Myeloma Awareness Month" to enhance the understanding of blood cancers and encourage participation in voluntary activities that support education programs, services to patients, and the funding of research programs to find cures.
