Message from the Chairs
Today, two out of every three people diagnosed with cancer will survive. With your help, we are aiming to make that three out of three. Our mission is to aid the fight to end cancer, and raise revenue to support the Society’s life-saving mission by funding cancer research, education, advocacy, and patient services.
Hope is possible and cures do happen. Because of your support of the American Cancer Society and efforts like this, we celebrate a 22% decline in cancer deaths and 1.5 million lives that have been saved. But we know there is more left to do. Quite simply put, the fight against cancer needs you to help get us there.
Many of us have family or friends affected by cancer, which is one of the reasons why we are chairs of the gala. Whether it’s participating in the live and silent auctions, enjoying dinner and dancing, connecting with old friends and meeting new ones, let’s rise to the occasion and embrace the opportunity to make a difference.
Join our chairs David and Thelma Steward at the American Cancer Society’s Champions of Hope gala on Saturday, November 4th, 2017.
