Cancer hasn't stopped, and neither has the American Cancer Society. The COVID-19 pandemic is especially scary for cancer patients, and we are here - at 1.800.227.2345 and cancer.org - 24/7, 365 days a year. 80% of the calls to our 1.800 number in the past few weeks have been related to the pandemic.
We are so grateful for the passion and dedication of our volunteers, and we need you now more than ever to help us minimize the impact on our 2020 revenue. We welcome your ideas for creative fundraising ideas; please email them to ACSeventsolutions@cancer.org.
Stay safe, keep up your spirits, and continue to speak passionately about our mission. This infographic will help you.
