And its likely that most all of them, in some way, benefit from better treatment because of medical advances that ACS helps to fund. Ultimately, of course, the goal is to eliminate cancer altogether, and the American Cancer Society provides funding for research to cure and prevent the disease as well.
Much of that research happens close to home. In the past year, a large portion of the $7.3 million ACS contributed to cancer research in Tennessee was utilized by Nashville-area facilities, places that we ourselves would be likely to visit for diagnosis or treatment.
There are a number of ways to support the American Cancer Society through Relay For Life of Wilson County, and all of them make a difference. You can start a Relay team at your place of business, join a team, volunteer to help with fundraising for the June 22 event, or just give to the cause.
To join Relay For Life of Wilson County or get more information, e-mail email@example.com, or visit RelayForLife.org/wilson. Relay For Life of Wilson County begins at 6 p.m. on Friday, June 22, at Castle Heights track near Wilson Bank & Trust in Lebanon.
With your help, maybe fewer and fewer people in Wilson County will ever have a doctor give them bad news because of cancer.
The worlds largest grassroots fundraising movement, Relay For Life helps support the American Cancer Societys mission to save lives by helping people stay well, by helping people get well, by finding cures and by fighting back.
