The American Cancer Society is one of the first resources that comes to mind when you need to find more information and support in dealing with cancer for you or your loved one. It is known for funding cancer research, cancer support programs, cancer prevention programs, and the cancer helpline that can support hundreds of languages. All of this amazing work that they are able to do is funded in large part by donations from people like you. Like many people who volunteer with the American Cancer Society, my reason is personal. I have had too many relatives and close friends who have battled cancer, but I've seen the support and strength that my own community has provided during these times. Now, I want to focus on providing that same level of support for others fighting cancer, through raising money for patient support programs.
