As a business owner, it’s so important to me that my customers stay safe from harm. While this isn’t always possible, there are often steps that we can take that will provide us with an umbrella of protection such as limiting exposure to the sun. This is one of the reasons that I often focus our blog topics on how the window treatments we add to vehicles every day can protect your delicate skin from the damaging and cancer-causing rays of the sun. This month, I wanted to share how one of my favorite organizations, the American Cancer Society, provides support, protection, and healing to individuals in our community and throughout the country. Learn more about this life-giving organization and how you can keep yourself and your family healthy.
There are so many ways that the American Cancer Society reaches out into communities around the country, and the thousands of passionate volunteers and donors work hard every day to have a major impact on those in need of help. From advocacy within the government to bolster survivors and families celebrating a loved one through a donation, there are dozens of ways that each human can help another by connecting with this unique organization.
Cancer research will not stop until a cure is found for all types of cancer. However, while cancer research into a cure is ongoing, research into making lives of cancer sufferers longer and more meaningful continues to be important. More than $4.6 billion has been invested in cancer research since 1946, including looking for factors that can cause cancer and reducing the severity of the disease. Sadly, there will be more than 1.7 million new cancer cases in the U.S. in 2018 and more than 600,000 deaths. These frightening statistics show how important it is to help support this life-giving organization whenever possible.
Treatment and support for cancer sufferers is only a click or a phone call away. You can contact the Cancer Helpline anytime at 1-800-227-2345 and live chat or learn more about treatment and support options for yourself or a loved one online. Whether you need assistance understanding a recent diagnosis, researching the treatment and side effects for a particular form of cancer, need help paying for treatment or simply need a ride to your care facility, this comprehensive website has a wealth of resources to help families of cancer victims and survivors.
