American Cancer Society is a nationwide voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer.
The American Cancer Society is a global grassroots force of more than 3 million volunteers saving lives and fighting for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. As the largest voluntary health organization, the Society's efforts have contributed to a 20 percent decline in cancer death rates in the U.S. since 1991, and a 50 percent drop in smoking rates. Thanks in part to our progress, nearly 14 million Americans who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will celebrate more birthdays this year. We're finding cures as the nation’s largest private, not-for-profit investor in cancer research, ensuring people facing cancer have the help they need and continuing the fight for access to quality health care, lifesaving screenings, clean air, and more. For more information, to get help or to join the fight, call us anytime, day or night, at 1-800-227-2345 or visit www.cancer.org/fight.
Relay For Life, the American Cancer Society’s signature overnight event, is a chance to celebrate not only cancer survivors but also continue the fight against cancer that was started more than 100 years ago when the American Cancer Society was created. Relay For Life of McKinney is set for 5 p.m. Saturday, May 4 through 11 p.m. at Meyers Park Show Barn in McKinney.
