AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY FOUNDATION
July 28, 2009

I have been involved with the American Cancer Society for the last four years through Relay for Life. I have been so impressed with the services offered to cancer patients and their families through this organization. They help to make this terrrible disease a little easier to live with and are there to support the family if the cancer patient does not survive. Relay for Life is only a small part of the American Cancer Society but makes a huge impact on people. The Cancer Society provides many services to cancer patients along with a 24 hour hot line to help with any questions they might have. Also provides programs for prevention of cancer. My family supports The American Society to the fullest.
