Cancer survivors needed!

From the moment you hear the words “You have cancer,” you become a survivor.

From the moment you hear the words “You have cancer,” you become a survivor. No matter your age, your race, your diagnosis date, your type of cancer, the American Cancer Society wants to hear from you. We want to celebrate you – please come to your local Relay For Life and walk the first lap with other survivors. We want to help you – we have free information, we have free brand new wigs, we can provide rides to your treatment so you don’t miss an appointment. We want to hear from you.

Would you like to get involved? We’d love an extra set of hands – to drive a patient to treatment, to help someone select a wig, to take a registration at a Relay For Life, to reach out to another survivor who is lonely and much more. There are many ways you can help, no matter how much or little time you have available and no matter where you live. How about now? Call 800-227-2345 or visit cancer.org and get connected today.
