accompanies of following a painful disease.
We are different
American Cancer Association is an initiative by people like you, who are willing to give back to society. We aren't associated with any organization and do not receive any government financing or grants to operate our service. As a community organization, we depend entirely on our generous community and their support.
Our Program is free for those needing assistance and is finding it hard to manage their lives while experiencing cancer. We will provide several types of assistance to patients, including free counseling, in-person meeting and consultation, education workshops, and financial aid. Through our professional and personnel approach, we will assist thousands of patients and look forward to accommodating more individuals with your help throughout our journey.
We, at AMERICAN CANCER ASSOCIATION, have a comprehensive approach to dealing with the scourge of cancer. In the developed countries there are multiple organizations, hospitals, and treatment centers which are dedicated to addressing this overwhelming problem. Unfortunately, this is tragically not the case in third world countries.
There is an unheard desperation as cancer tortures and ultimately kills thousands of innocents. We, at ACA , are devoted to re-mediating this situation. Ours is a threefold approach:
1) First, we intend to raise awareness of this critical situation. With alarming crises (both natural and man made) occurring periodically, public attention is pulled in multiple directions. Consequently, the continuing devastation continues unabated. It is our intention to raise awareness of this situation, and sustain that awareness.
2) Secondly, it is imperative that we raise funds. NOTHING can be accomplished without the necessary financial wherewithal.
3) And lastly, our most ambitious, and most necessary goal, is to create cancer treatment centers in countries where they are literally unknown.
Now you know what we want to do, and what we need to do it. Help us make a difference in countries where cancer victims and their families are literally invisible.
