This year the American Cancer Society marks its 100th birthday. In St. Louis, and cities across the country, cancer patients, survivors, volunteers, and corporate partners joined together to salute this major milestone.
We’re honored that more than 300 supporters took time out of their work day for our celebration on the American Cancer Society’s St. Louis campus. That’s 300 people who made noise and pledged to take action to finish the fight against cancer.
Today, two out of three people diagnosed with cancer are surviving. More than 400 people a day in the U.S. are celebrating birthdays that would have otherwise been lost to cancer. As the Official Sponsor of Birthdays ™, the American Cancer Society will continue to make noise by amplifying its efforts to ensure lifesaving cancer research gets funded; by making sure people facing cancer have the help they need, such as a free place to stay during treatment or a ride to get there; and by fighting for equal access to quality health care, lifesaving screenings, and clean air.
We want to sincerely thank all of the individuals and businesses who gave of their time, their talent, and their products in honor of our local 100th birthday celebration.
