THANK YOU for being a part of Relay For Life of Monrovia!
It was so special to see people from the community come together to celebrate cancer survivors, remember those we lost and take the pledge to continue fighting cancer.
We really had a lot of fun planning Monrovia’s Relay For Life and hope you had fun too!
So far… we have raised over $8,000. That’s fantastic! When you put it into perspective… that is providing:
•$20 can help provide free information and support for a person facing cancer. (Our Cancer Information Specialists fulfill nearly 1 million requests from people needing cancer information and answers via 1-800-227-2345, email, and online chats each year. The cost of fulfilling one service request is about $18.)
•$20 can help connect 20 people to clinical trials through our clinical trials matching service, which currently lists 6,000 ongoing studies.
•$50 can help provide 4 rides to or from treatment for a cancer patient. (Through our Road To Recovery® program, American Cancer Society volunteer drivers provided nearly 380,000 free rides to and from treatment for cancer patients last year. The cost of providing one transportation service, including volunteer training, is about $11.)
•$100 can help guide 4 women facing breast cancer through every step of their journey. (Through our Reach To Recovery® program, the American Cancer Society provided more than 51,300 services in 2013 to women facing a breast cancer diagnosis by connecting them with a trained breast cancer survivor volunteer. The cost of providing one Reach To Recovery service, including training volunteers and connecting volunteers with patients costs about $24.)
•$500 can help offer a cancer patient and their caregiver 6 nights of free lodging when having to travel away from home for treatment. (Last year, the American Cancer Society provided 230,700 free nights to cancer patients and their caregivers who had to travel away from home for treatment at our Hope Lodge® facilities, saving them millions in lodging costs. One night of lodging costs the American Cancer Society about $83.)
•$1,000 can help support an early career researcher turning to the American Cancer Society to investigate cancer, its causes, or how to help patients cope with the effects of the disease and its treatment.
And SO MUCH MORE!
It’s not too late to keep fundraising and spreading the word about relay. In fact… you have until August 30th to get donations online or mail checks into the office.
