I am a volunteer and a 16 year employee of the American Cancer Society. I volunteer for Road to Recovery, have a Relay for Life Team and have helped at many of our community events. This organization provides cancer patients with information 24/7, 365 days a year via the phone and web. They help cancer patients in every community, every day with every type of cancer. That is a daunting task. We have been at this work for 100 years and we always striving to be better and save more lives and find a cure. Our eyes are always on the prize - the cure for all cancers. We never stop! Providing access to care is a prime goals and providing resources to patients when they need something that we can't provide. Our research program funds brillant young researchers starting their careers and 46 of them have gone on to win the Nobel Prize. What an accomplishment. Every person has been touched by our work in some way. There is no way to compare charities because we all work differently. When looking at the impact of our work at the American Cancer Society, there is no compariston. We aren't perfect, but we aren't giving up and we will see this to the end of cancer and I hope you will be able to say that you helped. Thanks to all who do. I am passionate of my work, my pride and my commitment.
