Almost everybody in this country has been touched by cancer in one way or another. If not personally, perhaps a family member, co-worker, neighbor or somebody you know has been afflicted with this horrible disease. Although I have lost friends & family members to cancer, I am also thrilled to have friends that have beaten cancer. A few friends are still fighting the battle.
By helping to find cures, giving support, and saving lives, the American Cancer Society has been at the forefront of the fight against cancer for 100 years. While 60 years ago, 1 out of 3 people diagnosed with cancer survived at least 5 years, today, 2 out of 3 will survive. And the American Cancer Society won’t stop working until it is 3 out of 3.
The American Cancer Society has a proven track record of supporting the best ideas of the brightest cancer researchers, taking part in nearly every major cancer breakthrough in recent history. They have 46 Nobel laureates to show for it.
Still, much more needs to be done. Hundreds of research studies are unfunded and over half a million Americans died of cancer this year. Since cancer thrives on silence and complacency, it must be met with awareness, early detection and continued research. In other words, only action will finish the fight.
