Sponsored Video: Has Your Life Been Touched By Cancer?

9:00 PM


I don't think there is a person alive whose life has not been touched by cancer. My granddad and both grandmas had it, as well as other extended family members. If there is something that everyone can agree on, it is the fact that this disease has got to go. Unfortunately, that is easier said than done. One organization however, has fought long and hard to kick this terrible disease to the curb. In fact, this year, the American Cancer Society is celebrating 100 years of fighting cancer.

Although a cure has not yet been found, the American Cancer Society has played a pivotal role in helping those diagnosed with cancer. For instance, 60 years ago 1 in every 3 people diagnosed with cancer could expect to survive for 5 years. Now, 2 out of 3 people who are diagnosed survive! They have been behind almost every major cancer study breakthrough, and have 46 Nobel Laureates to show for it!


As someone who has watched members of their family die from this disease, I am thankful to organizations like the American Cancer Society, who never give up, and continue to trudge forward in what sometimes feels like a never ending battle with a silent enemy. Cancer still exists though, and touches hundreds of thousands of lives each day. That is why there is still more work to do, 100's of research studies went unfounded last year, while 577,000 Americans died of cancer.

The American Cancer Society still needs your help! Help so they can continue a fight that is neccessary so others can survive! You can visit the American Cancer Society site for more information on what actions they are taking in the fight against cancer and to help by giving a donation so that their important work can continue!

  4. I agree I don't think I've met someone not touched by cancer. My grandmother died of breast cancer and my stepfather of lung cancer. My best friends mom and a co-worker of mine each had breast cancer as well.

    Cancer is way to common and it would be great to find a cure.

  6. Cancer is such a terrifying disease. I lost an aunt (breast cancer and then a brain tumor) and uncle (leukemia) to cancer. My oldest brother had prostate cancer over a year ago, but he beat it.
