It is very sad to say that nearly everyone has been affected by cancer at some point in their lives. I have watched it tear apart the lives of several friends and colleagues and have even had it touch my own family when my mother was diagnosed with cervical cancer a few years back.
My mother, like many others, is a fighter and she was not about to succumb to cancer without making some noise. I am proud to say she is a survivor, but certainly not without the help of organizations such as The American Cancer Society, who tirelessly lead the fight against cancer by finding cures, giving support, and saving lives. The American Cancer Society has a proven track record of supporting the best ideas of the brightest cancer researchers. They have been part of nearly every major cancer breakthrough in recent history, and have 46 Nobel Laureates to show for it.
To celebrate their 100th birthday, The American Cancer Society are amplifying their efforts even more so to #FinishtheFight against cancer and refuse to sit back silently until that fight ends in victory against this killer disease that affects so many people today. 60 years ago, 1 out of 3 people diagnosed with cancer survived at least 5 years. Today, thanks in part to the work of the American Cancer Society, 2 out of 3 will survive. They won’t stop until they make it 3 out of 3 who will survive!
I can’t urge everyone enough to make some noise and give this cause the due attention that it deserves because silence will not win this fight, only action will!
