THE STORY:

The American Cancer Society is one of the first resources that comes to mind when you need to find more information and support in dealing with cancer for you or your loved one. It is known for funding cancer research, cancer support programs, cancer prevention programs, and the cancer helpline that can support hundreds of languages. All of this amazing work that they are able to do is funded in large part by donations from people like you. Like many people who volunteer with the American Cancer Society, my reason is very personal. Many of you may not know this, but 3 years ago, my dad was diagnosed with colon cancer and continues to undergo treatment currently.  Initially, I kept this very private to focus on his health and my family.  But now, I am finding different ways to connect with the cancer community and find ways to help others.


This year, I began to volunteer on the San Francisco Associate Board of Ambassadors of the American Cancer Society as the Media Chair.  It's been a humbling and fulfilling experience to cold-email businesses to request media sponsorships and solicit donation requests for the fundraising gala on September 16th.  And now, I am also challenging myself to reach out to my network of friends to ask you to support me in my fundraising efforts for the 80% by 2018 Campaign.  


What is 80% by 2018? 

“80% by 2018” is a National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable initiative in which

more than 1,000 organizations have committed to substantially reducing colorectal cancer as a major public health problem for those 50 and older. These organizations are working toward the shared goal of 80% of adults aged 50 and older being regularly screened for colorectal cancer by 2018.  If we can achieve 80% by 2018, 277,000 cases and 203,000 colorectal cancer deaths would be prevented by 2030.
