celebrating 100 years of fighting to save lives

100 years ago, the American Cancer Society started the fight of a lifetime. Together we can finish that fight. Let's boldly join together to make this cancer's last century.

Sixty years ago, 1 out of 3 people diagnosed with cancer survived.
Today, thanks in part to the work of the American Cancer Society, 2 out of 3 will survive.

I have family members and dear friends who have courageously lost the fight, continue to survive the disease, and provide care during the battle.  I celebrate this milestone in honor everyone who's lives have been touched by cancer, and look forward to continuing the FIGHT!
