Proclamation 7765--Cancer Control Month, 2004


 April 2, 2004

 By the President of the United States

 of America

 A Proclamation

    We have made dramatic progress in our fight against cancer, yet this 
disease continues to be the second-leading cause of death in the United 
States. Cancer Control Month provides the opportunity for Americans to 
learn vital information about cancer prevention, detection, and 
treatment.
    Medical science is helping cancer victims live healthier, longer 
lives. Survival rates are rising, and today our country has more than 9 
million cancer survivors. However, much work remains to be done. 
Researchers estimate that more than 1.3 million people in the United 
States will be diagnosed with cancer this year, and more than 800,000 
will die from the disease.
    A good diet, regular exercise, and healthy choices help people 
reduce their risk of developing many chronic diseases, including cancer. 
Research suggests that being overweight or obese accounts for 14 percent 
of cancer deaths among men and 20 percent among women.
    Regular check-ups are also important in the fight against cancer. 
Preventive health screenings can detect many forms of cancer at earlier, 
less dangerous stages, allowing doctors to stop cancer before it 
spreads. I encourage all Americans to talk to their doctors about 
preventive screenings and regular check-ups.
    As we observe Cancer Control Month, I commend cancer survivors for 
their courage and determination. I applaud medical professionals, 
researchers, family members, and friends for their efforts to improve 
the lives of those suffering from cancer and for their work in finding a 
cure for this devastating disease. I encourage all Americans to learn 
more about cancer. By working together, we can save lives and win the 
fight against cancer.
    In 1938, the Congress of the United States passed a joint resolution 
(52 Stat. 148; 36 U.S.C. 103) as amended, requesting the President to 
issue an annual proclamation declaring April as ``Cancer Control 
Month.''
    Now, Therefore, I, George W. Bush, President of the United States of 
America, do hereby proclaim April 2004 as Cancer Control Month. I 
encourage citizens, government agencies, private businesses, nonprofit 
organizations, and other interested groups to join in activities that 
will increase awareness of what Americans can do to prevent and control 
cancer.
    In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this second day of 
April, in the year of our Lord two thousand four, and of the 
Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and twenty-
eighth.
                                                George W. Bush

 [Filed with the Office of the Federal Register, 8:58 a.m., April 6, 
2004]

Note: This proclamation was published in the Federal Register on April 
7. This item was not received in time for publication in the appropriate 
issue.

Proclamation 7766--National Child Abuse Prevention Month, 2004

 April 2, 2004

 By the President of the United States

 of America

 A Proclamation

    America has a fundamental duty to protect the safety and well-being 
of its children. During National Child Abuse Prevention Month, we renew 
our commitment to preventing child abuse and neglect, and we dedicate

[[Page 532]]

ourselves to creating a safe environment in which our children can grow 
and thrive.
    We have made important progress in protecting America's children, 
but too many still suffer from abuse and neglect. Recent reports 
indicate that nearly 900,000 children were found to be victims of abuse 
or neglect in 2002. Of these children, an estimated 1,400 died, 75 
percent of whom were 4 years old or younger.
    These young girls and boys depend on adults to recognize the risk 
factors and warning signs of abuse and to take action to end it. This 
critical responsibility is shared by parents, teachers, coaches, 
religious leaders, government officials, and concerned citizens in every 
community.
    Now, Therefore, I, George W. Bush, President of the United States of 
America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and 
laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim April 2004 as National 
Child Abuse Prevention Month. I encourage all citizens to take an active 
role in creating a caring community and help protect America's children 
from abuse and neglect.
    In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this second day of 
April, in the year of our Lord two thousand four, and of the 
Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and twenty-
eighth.
                                                George W. Bush

 [Filed with the Office of the Federal Register, 8:58 a.m., April 6, 
2004]

Note: This proclamation was published in the Federal Register on April 
7. This item was not received in time for publication in the appropriate

Proclamation 7767--Education and Sharing Day, U.S.A., 2004

 April 2, 2004

 By the President of the United States

 of America

 A Proclamation

    On Education and Sharing Day, U.S.A., we recognize the importance of 
teaching children good character and values. Families, schools, and 
religious congregations help instill in our children the enduring values 
of courage, compassion, integrity, and respect for differences of faith 
and race. By building the mind and character of every child in America, 
we encourage our children to make the right choices, and we create a 
future of promise and opportunity for all.
