|Take action to finish the fight against cancer|
The American Cancer Society is using its 100th birthday on May 22 to encourage people to join together, make noise and take action to finish the fight against cancer.
The Society urges everyone to make some noise by donating at cancer.org/fight, participating in a local Relay For Life or Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in their community and/or enrolling in its ground breaking Cancer Prevention Study-3 to find better ways to prevent cancer.
Two out of three people diagnosed with cancer are surviving the disease (for at least five years). More than 400 people a day in the U.S. are celebrating birthdays that would have otherwise been lost to cancer.
As the Official Sponsor of Birthdays(TM), the American Cancer Society will continue to make noise by amplifying its efforts to ensure lifesaving cancer research gets funded; by making sure people facing cancer have the help they need, such as a free place to stay during treatment or a ride to get there; and by fighting for equal access to quality health care, lifesaving screenings, and clean air.
