Dear Friends and Supporters,
Today we ask you to join us as a united force against all cancers through your participation in the 11th Annual American Cancer Hope Gala.
What does it take to outsmart cancer? Research. We've invested more than $4.8 billion in cancer research since 1946, all to find more – and better – treatments, uncover factors that may cause cancer, and improve cancer patients' quality of life. A steady, 25-year decline has resulted in a 27% drop in the overall cancer death rate in the U.S., translating to approximately 2.6 million fewer cancer deaths between 1991 and 2016.
Our event will be held on Saturday, September 14, 2019 at the magnificent home of Todd Scrima. This exquisite evening will feature a cocktail reception, gourmet dining, silent and live auctions, and an incredible band. The American Cancer Society is extremely proud to announce Lisa Ling as the 2019 Guest of Honor.
While we’re making great progress, it’s going to take all of us, working together, to beat this disease. Together, we’re making sure more people have the chance to live a healthy life, get appropriate cancer screening, and receive high-quality treatment and support. Your investment in the American Cancer Society means we’re able to provide support to everyone impacted by cancer, in every community, from research to education, prevention to diagnosis, and treatment to recovery.
Your support makes an incredible difference and means the world to us. Thank you for all you’re doing to help save lives from cancer, every day !
For more than 100 years, The American Cancer Society has been leading the fight to end cancer. With your support, we have helped usher in an era where more people survive cancer than ever before. By translating our research findings into action, we've seen a 20% decline in US cancer death rates since the early 1990s.
