Photos: Georgia To Support Prostate Cancer And Childhood Cancer Awareness Month With Helmet Stickers

When the Georgia Bulldogs hit the field on Saturday for their SEC East battle with South Carolina, they will be sporting two special helmet stickers to support great causes. September is Prostate Cancer and Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and the Dawgs will be supporting both efforts.

Georgiahas more on why these two causes hit home for the program.

Both of these causes hit close to home for the Bulldogs. Former Southeastern Conference Commissioner Mike Slive battled prostate cancer. Commissioner Slive will be in attendance at the football game and will be honored for his commitment to building the Southeastern Conference into the top college football conference in the nation.

In addition to Commissioner Slive, Henry Shepard, a childhood cancer survivor of Athens and son of Georgia graduates, will also be honored on the field. Shepard was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer. Shepard returned home on August 4 after receiving his last chemotherapy treatment.

Well done, UGA.
