AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY FOUNDATION
July 22, 2009
The American Cancer Society provided the answer to my question, "What can I do? What can one middle-age cancer survivor do to STOP this disease?"
The American Cancer Society gave me 14 birthdays I wouldn't have enjoyed otherwise; gave me a mission of my own in the Relay For Life of Texas County; gave me a voice in the Heroes of Hope: Profiles of Courage program and as a Celebration on the Hill Ambassador; gave me confidence because I see for myself how frugal the organization is with donations; and in short, gave me the chance to hand my son a future where cancer is not a scary word.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
the most generous, hard-working individuals I have known and I have always said (as a cancer survivor myself) that "Survivors are the nicest people." Everyone the ACS brings me into contact with are dedicated to improving lives and saving lives.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Volunteer & I gave hope to people diagnosed with Hodgkin's Disease Lymphoma so they could see for themselves that cancer is not a death sentence.
