Coaches vs. Cancer Basket “Ball”

Real Men Wear Pink gives men a leadership role in the fight against breast cancer. Community leaders around the nation use the power of pink to raise awareness and money for the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer initiatives.

Making Strides has always been more than just a walk, it’s a movement. Because of the pandemic, how we unite and fight back this fall may look different but our passion to end breast cancer is the same.

Relay For Life may look different this year, but now more than ever, cancer patients and researchers need your help to sustain the fight against cancer. Our lifesaving mission has been threatened by suspended events and a decrease in donations, so your support is urgently needed to continue research, patient programs and cancer screening.

Most cervical cancers are preventable through HPV vaccination. Cervical screening can detect changes before cancer develops. Talk to a doctor and visit cancer.org/get-screened

"Sharing your cancer story doesn't have to be long. What you could share is when you had your cervical cancer screening. That's a very short story."
We're excited to share scenes from our 2021 Gala of Hope! 🎉We can't thank this community enough for the support that we saw for our honoree C.J. DeCrescente and for the cancer community. The Capital Region is making our mark on the fight against cancer thanks to you!

Thank you to @ironglassny for capturing it all!🎥

It’s unconscionable that going to your cancer treatment could mean losing your job or not being able to afford food for your family. And many caregivers face the same dilemma when caring for a loved one who desperately needs their help. A newly released ACS CAN study of recent cancer patients and survivors shows that 74% had to miss work to receive their cancer care or treatment. That’s why we need you to join us in asking your U.S. Senators to not cut the paid family and medical leave program from the House version of the Build Back Better Act. Take action now. http://action.fightcancer.org/site/Advocacy?pagename=homepage&id=19218&s_src=socials_subsrc=Facebook
