Volunteers can beat cancer

April 10, 2014 

More than 100 years ago, the American Cancer Society was started by volunteers relentless in their desire to change the course of cancer's history.

Today, the American Cancer Society thanks its more than 3 million volunteers -- including the many volunteers here in this community -- each of whom is creating their own legacy of compassion and dedication toward the collective goal of finishing the fight against cancer.

This was National Volunteer Week. The American Cancer Society invites you to stand with us to continue that legacy.

Whether driving cancer patients to and from treatment, making meals for patients staying at a Hope Lodge, leading a team at one of our community events or advocating for change, your impact matters greatly.
