Relay For Life to meet

May 15, 2019

Relay For Life of Rock River will be having a speaker from the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network. ACS-CAN is the nation’s leading cancer advocacy organization that is working every day to make cancer issues a national priority.

Achieving a world free from the pain and suffering of cancer requires a comprehensive public policy agenda. The mission and thus the work includes a strong focus on preventing cancer, seeking new cures and treatments and ensuring all Americans have access to the medical care that could save their life. ASC-CAN also supports the determination and courage of cancer patients and survivors by working to improve their quality of life both during treatment and after it has ended.

The enormous record of accomplishment is a result of their volunteers and staff relentlessly advocating at every level of government, from local city councils and county commissions to every state legislature, the U.S. Congress and the federal government.

The meeting will be held at the Watertown Senior Center 514 S. First St. on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. All are invited to come. A second meeting will be held on Saturday at Tribeca Gallery Café & Books 401 E. Main St. at 8 a.m. Updated information on the event will also be given out. The event will be held on Aug. 2 at the Watertown High School. More teams and survivors are needed to be a part of the event. Register a team or as a survivor on line at www.relayforlife.org/rockriverwi. Or call Kay Christian at 920-261-0077 for more information.
