Inorder to beat cancer, broad understanding is needed and that is the role of Cancer Society Of America. They will deliver their research output in the simplest form, where a layman can understand it easily. I considered this a great organization that helps so many people from different walks of life. I am proud to help raise money for them.
the day i was diagnosed, august 8, 2005, my world went upside down. but a call to 1-800-ACS-2345 helped calm my frazzled nerves. the american cancer society provided me with a counselor (someone who was a cancer survivor), who basically let me vent for nearly an hour. i called a second time to speak with a nurse that the toll free number provides and she guided me through my pathology report. as a way of saying thanks, and wanting to reach out to others i joined the relay for life committee in my hometown of wichita falls, texas. from there it's been a never-ending joyful ride on the relay for life train. each relay is fun and since becoming an american cancer society hero of hope i've been given the opportunity to fulfill my life's purpose: helping others. i was adopted into the ACS "family" and fell in love with its staff and fellow volunteers. this is one organization that's truly family. the acs is always there when you need them. they reach out to cancer survivors in a way that's unlike other groups. and when we defeat this dreaded disease maybe the "american cancer society" could change its name to the "always caring society".... where love & family know no bounds.
