While smoking is by far the leading cause of lung cancer — accounting for 8 out of 10 lung cancer deaths in the US — it can be diagnosed in anyone.

That’s why the American Cancer Society takes a comprehensive approach to fighting lung cancer, and why we’ve invested more than $100 million in lung cancer research.

Cancer care is one of the vast inequities Black communities face.

One stark example: Black women get breast cancer at similar rates as white women yet have a 40% higher risk of dying from it. That’s unacceptable. The American Cancer Society funds health equity grants and screening programs, and advocates for access to care for everyone.

This is such an exciting opportunity!!

The American Cancer Society of Kentucky and the American Cancer Society of Indiana have teamed up for a "Mile of Hope" campaign. It's 410 miles from the top of Indiana to the southern border of Kentucky.

Our mission at the American Cancer Society has never been so threatened in our 107 year history as it is now due to COVID-19. We’re in danger of losing a generation of progress in scientific research and a generation of lifesaving progress if we don’t act now.

You may be wondering "What can I do to help?” I would love some of my Relay friends to sponsor one mile by asking 10 of their family, friends, neighbors, co-workers to donate $10 and and get to that $100 by July 13th when we will have a National Day of Hope telethon. You are not being asked to walk or run a mile..this is a virtual mile you are sponsoring.

If are interested in being a "Mile of Hope" participant ..let me know and I am happy to get you started! 💜💜💜

PLEASE READ THE WHOLE POST:

Once a year, the American Cancer Society comes out with ONE shirt for the whole state to sell as a fundraiser. Are you ready for this year’s shirt?? (Drum roll, please)

This year’s shirt is Team Kentucky- Hope is never cancelled.

Available in two different colors – Kelly Green or Navy Blue

Shirts are: Port & Company Core Blend tee and 50% cotton/50% poly

Shirts are available in:
Youth Small to Adult XL for $16.00
2x to 6x for $18.00

The process this is year is totally different thanks to COVID-19. I will NOT have any shirts on hand or in my car 😊. These are PRE-ORDER ONLY!!!!!! Due to social distancing practices – I will not have extra shirts and I will not be handling any money.

To get a shirt: You MUST order online through this link https://acshope.itemorder.com/sale

Again..I am not taking your orders.. YOU MUST ORDER YOUR SHIRT ONLINE WITH THIS LINK. You will pay with a major credit card. The deadline to order and pay for your shirt is July 1st. We don’t know if any more orders will be taken after July 1st.

Shirts will be shipped to me by 3rd or 4th week of July and I will make arrangements with you to safely and with social distancing get your shirt(s) to you.

Relay Teams : YES, this a fundraiser for YOUR Relay For Life team. When a person orders online..it will ask for their Relay For Life (county) name..and IF they put in YOUR team name..it will count as your team money. Because ACS can’t expenses anything right now..your team will get $10 from each shirt sold youth small-xl and $9.25 for 2x-6x (and IF the buyer put your team name online when ordering).

Order, Order, Order and let’s support your American Cancer Society!

Gordy's Vision

Dr. Klatt had a purpose when he began the 24 Hour Relay in 1985. The significance of daytime and nighttime coincides with the journey that all cancer patients go through.

Clear your mind and picture............

It's daylight. Life is wonderful. You're healthy, happy and looking forward to the future. You're looking forward to your child's dance recital or taking your child to Disney World for a vacation. You're looking forward to the new house you just bought. You have a new dream job that you're thrilled about.

But then,...... darkness falls.

You hear those words " You've got cancer", or worse, your child has cancer. Your life has suddenly become very dark. You don't know what the outcome will be. You feel there is no hope in sight. You start your treatments. Your nauseous and you have no hair. You're exhausted from caring for your child and from the agony knowing there's nothing you can do to make him healthy again. You couldn't possibly feel any worse.

Until.

The sun starts to rise. The tumor is shrinking. Your treatments are working. You're getting your appetite back. Your child feels well enough to go out and play for just a few minutes. There is hope.

It is now daylight and you're in remission. You have your life back. You've made it through the night and the darkness. You celebrate life in the daylight knowing that the darkness of nighttime is behind you.

This is why we Relay.
This is why Relay is an overnight event.
