American Cancer Society is not publicly respected and they are not trustworthy because of their poor reputation and shams. All they are interested is to get your money. Here are just a couple of public record links about them:

Cancer survivors, thos still fighting it, those that have loved ones that have lost their battle, and those just do not love cancer. Please read tomorrow's Scranton Times- ACS (American Cancer Society) has turns its back on us by cancelling the Ball of Hope becuase it didn't turn out enough profits. It cleared $70,000 last year in the black and does not consider that enough. So they are refusing to do the ball. A reporter via 3 way calling did an interview with Kara Konyves & I on why is so desparately needed!! You know who gets hurt don't you- the kids & only the kids. rk This Ball of Hope held at the Scranton Cultural funds Camp can do as well as others-cancer camp for kids with cancer. Alot of those kids are not around now- but the joy they experienced lives on in the pictures the parents have from the camp. Faces of hope.

My Grandmother, Mary passed away from lung cancer January 20, 2000. It was the most devastating thing I've ever experienced in my life! I have to say any organization that is searching for a cure and sponsoring as many events as the ACS is a friend of mine! Anyone that needs advice/support, I can assure you ACS has a resource! Hold your head up, ACS is working round the clock for a cure...... We will get there! Stay positive and keep the faith!

When I was told I had uterine cancer all I could think of was "I have to call Marty" Marty. a friend of mine also lost her mother to cancer and now works for the American cancer socity in Fort Wayne In. She sent me literature and put me in touch with people who could help me in every way including lodging while away from home for surgury. I pray every day for a cure for this disease and thank all who help cheer us up through it.
