"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!

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.
