Why I Support the American Cancer Society
"I am honored to be a 2019-2020 Ambassador for the American Cancer Society. My family and I know firsthand the important work the American Cancer Society is doing. In May, 2008, my mother and best friend, was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer. The cancer had metastasized to her liver and bones and she passed away on July 5, 2008. My mother was diligent in getting her mammograms each and every year, but despite her diligence the cancer remained undetected. My story is one of too many, which is why we must find a cure for cancer. The future depends on it!"

Cancer has touched all of us in some way.
And we want to stop this disease in its tracks.
We'll spend the next few weeks fundraising for the American Cancer Society.
Then, on the day of the event, we'll honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others.
Together, we'll be a part of making a difference in this important cause.
