The American Cancer Society:

The American Cancer Society: The American Cancer Society Young Leaders Council (YLC) is a year-round committee composed of young professionals, students, and community members dedicated to raising funds and awareness toward the fight against cancer through support of various American Cancer Society initiatives.

YLC members will support the mission of the American Cancer Society through fundraising activities of their choice such as Relay For Life, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, the Cattle Baron’s Ball, the Hope Lodge Golf Invitational, and the Online Challenge, with an overall council goal of raising $25,000. Additionally, members will serve as community ambassadors for the Society, championing the Society’s mission and cancer-fighting programs.

or nearly a century, the American Cancer Society has fought for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. By taking what we’ve learned through research and turning it into what we do, we have contributed to a 15 percent decrease in the overall cancer death rate between the early 1990s and 2005. That means that we helped avoid about 650,000 cancer deaths and created the potential for more birthday celebrations. Overall, 11 million cancer survivors in America will celebrate a birthday this year.

Save a life today and make your donation to the American Cancer Society & help me reach my fundraising goal of $500!
