Too many people are affected by cancer. It has impacted, in one way or another, almost everyone. That’s why CSS continues to support the Relay For Life event – to help raise funds for the American Cancer Society. Money raised from these events makes a HUGE impact on cancer research and helps to save millions of lives and support those battling this dreaded disease.

Relay For Life is more than a fundraiser; it’s an event that brings the whole community together to prove that we will not let cancer win! It’s also a time when we honor survivors and caregivers, and remember loved ones lost. Together, we can stop this disease. That’s why we’d like your help.

Here’s how the American Cancer Society uses donations to help save lives:

  • Supporting innovative cancer research, lifesaving screenings, and treatment
  • Offering 24/7 Lifeline for free, comprehensive cancer information, patient navigators, health insurance information, clinical trial matching, or just a friendly ear
  • Providing crucial patient care programs like Hope Lodge® offers patients and their caregivers a free place to stay when treatment is far from home.

Please support the American Cancer Society by making a donation. Thanks so much!
