Starting July 16 and continuing through October, we’re uniting to Share The Light and raise funds to ensure COVID-19 doesn’t stop cancer patients from receiving the support they need.
Share The Light is a digital fundraising campaign that illuminates opportunities to reverse the downward trends in financial support of cancer research and patient services.
How You Can Help
Share a photo with a caption or shoot a video with your light – a match, a cell phone, a candle – and tell your friends and family why you're sharing this light in the fight against cancer. Then, post it to social media.
Example video: You can offer words of encouragement, share your cancer story, or share how you’re fighting cancer. You can find some examples on Facebook, including this one from a staffer in Vermont. Post it to social using #ShareTheLight and tag @AmericanCancerSociety.
Sample social post: I’m helping illuminate the critical need to increase funding for the cancer fight. I challenge (tag your friends/family) to do the same. #ShareTheLight (tag American Cancer Society).
