American Cancer Society Marks 100th Birthday with Call to Finish the Fight

Atlanta — April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — On Wednesday, May 22, 2013, the American Cancer Society will celebrate 100 years of saving lives and creating a world with more birthdays. The Society is using the historic milestone as an opportunity to encourage everyone to participate in a Moment Against Silence by pledging to do one thing to help finish the fight against cancer, such as making a donation, enrolling in the research study called Cancer Prevention Study-3 to help better understand how to prevent cancer, and making healthy choices to reduce cancer risk. For details, go to cancer.org/fight.

Starting this week, and continuing for the next 100 days, the Society will feature an inspirational story each day about a cancer survivor, volunteer, researcher or others who are making noise and taking action to finish the fight. Visit 100 Stories of Hope on cancer.org/fight to read the profiles.

The following events will be open to the media:
