WHAT IS THE CANCER SOCIETY PURPOSE? 
The purpose of the cancer society is to save lives by helping people get well, finding cures and fight back also to save lives.

Every day, more than 40 children are diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. alone – with 175,000 thousand children being diagnosed worldwide each year. Cancer is the #1 disease killer of children. Today, cancer (and cancer treatments) will claim the lives of four American children – more than complications from congenital birth defects, type 1 diabetes, and asthma combined. The survival rates among children with cancer are not improving because the conventional treatments (chemo and radiation) make things worse and there’s very little emphasis on finding the cause rather than merely treating symptoms.


  • OBJECTIVE:

    Raise awareness of various cancers that plague children and adults by engaging in community service projects and by providing information to the public. 

    Raise funds to donate to various organizations that support cancer research and funding for cancer patients, such as The American Cancer Society, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and St. Jude Hospital.
