Making Strides Against Breast Cancer
Since it was founded in 1913, the American Cancer Society® has been dedicated to the fight against this horrible disease. As their mission statement says, they are dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering form cancer through research, education, advocacy, and service.
Today, the Society has grown from it’s humble beginnings to a global leader in the fight against cancer, working tirelessly to save lives by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back against the disease. When other public and private sources of funding have diminished, thanks to support from people like you, the Society has been able to increase funding through more research grants to help a new generation of medical researchers.
The Society is proud to have contributed to the work that has resulted in a 25% drop in the overall cancer death rate in the United States. That drop means 2.1 million fewer cancer deaths between 1991 and 2014. Progress continues and is currently estimated at 500 fewer cancer deaths every day.
Nature’s Answer® is proud to be a sponsor of the Jones Beach walkathon this year, and we will have over 250 employees, friends and family joining us on Sunday, October 15th to support this great event.
