Continuing a legacy

More than 100 years ago, the American Cancer Society was started by volunteers relentless in their desire to change the course of cancer’s history.

The American Cancer Society would like to thank the many volunteers here in this community, each of whom is creating their own legacy of compassion and dedication toward the collective goal of fighting the fight against cancer.

During National Volunteer Week (April 6-12), the American Cancer Society invited residents to stand with us to continue that legacy. We feel far too many lives are being touched by this dreadful disease and the tears are too many. It is time for you to step up and give back to your community for those loved ones and for those who have not been touched as of yet by the sad news. Help us be their voices, help us be the kind face they see as a Reach for Recovery volunteer. Help us take up this fight for those too weak to speak. Science finds the way, Volunteers make it happen!

So, whether driving cancer patients to and from treatment, making meals for patients staying at a Hope Lodge, leading a team at one of our community events or advocating for change, your impact matters greatly.

For information on local volunteer opportunities that can help save lives from cancer, visit cancer.org/getinvolved or call 1-800-227-2345.
