I do the relay for life every single year and love that I am making a difference in people's lives. American Cancer Society gives me that option. I've met so many awesome, courageous cancer survivors.

The American Cancer Society is an amazing organization. They really are trying to find a cure for cancer. Your money goes towards research. You can go online to donate. Overall, the American Cancer Society is a great organization that I support.

Praying from the bottom of my heart for a cancer cure all. I’m all for this non profit organization, and I’ve donated several times. I feel like their research will pay off someday, and will truly save lives.

I hope and pray everyday that we find a cure for cancer. There are so many different ways to support so many of these organizations. Support any way you can. Participate in runs or walks- its a great way to celebrate someone's memory or honor someone's life....

I've been a volunteer for this organization for about 15 years and I donate every chance I get. They are a great non profit organization and the money helps with so much research as well as to help others. I'm sure we know someone personally or in our lives that have been affected by cancer. This is a great way to give back and help others.

I have a ton of respect for the American cancer society. They are honest about where donations go (when many charities are not), and the majority of the donations that they receive goes towards research and helping the family is affected by this disease. I have supported this organization for many years and will continue to do so, as anything I can do to help those affected is worth it.

I think this is a fantastic organization.The American Cancer Society is a nationwide voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service. I really like that some schools are also getting involved with this organization. When I was in High School my teacher would always keep a box on her desk for collecting donations.

I have had several family members that have died from cancer and many others who are survivors. An organization that raises awareness and funds for cancer research is one that I will always be behind. To be able to walk or sponsor someone who is walking for such a great cause it refreshing. Awareness is key and this organization is doing just that.

I donate every month to this society. My father in law passed away from cancer and also my grandfather had cancer too. I'm hoping we help fund and find a cure in the next five years! I have a feeling we are getting close!

Cancer runs in both sides of my family and i have friends that have lost some of their family from cancer. Every once in a while my city does walks to help spread awareness and help organizations by donating, and I try to help and attend the walks as often as I can to walk for those who can't.
