The Celebration of ACS CAN’s 10th Birthday
A celebration of ACS CAN’s 10 years of accomplishments: • Greater government investments in cancer research • Better access to lifesaving health care • Easier availability of mammograms and colonoscopies • Broader smoke-free policies and higher tobacco taxes
A celebration of the milestones YOU’VE reached or hope to reach because of cancer research I hope to see my grandson graduate from high school. My children never have to go through what I went through. I want to celebrate my 40th wedding anniversary with my dear wife. I got to celebrate my 50th birthday surrounded by friends. I was able to walk the survivor lap at my Relay For Life. My mom and I enjoyed one more sunset together.
