FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Bless the Mic is bringing awareness with the American Cancer Society

 

TERRE HAUTE, Ind., Nov. 13, 2013– On Dec. 4, 2013 at 7 p.m., Bless the Mic will be hosting a show dedicated to raising awareness to cancer. The American Cancer Society will be collaborating with the committee members of Bless the Mic, and will be collecting donations for the ACS.

 

This show will not only raise awareness, but it will also help us collect some more money for the American Cancer Society. Our main goal is to raise awareness all over to people who have been not just affected by cancer, but to those who may have never really known what cancer can do or what cancer is. “Whether you have cancer or are close to someone who does, understanding what to expect can help you cope,” Krista Steinmetz said, a representative for American Cancer Society from Vigo County.

 

To find out more information about cancer and what people can do in order to help bring awareness to the American Cancer Society, visit www.cancer.org.

 

The American Cancer Society was founded back on May 23, 1913, and has been going strong ever since. Our purpose is to help people not only get well, but to also stay well, find cures, and to fight back.

American Cancer Society

Fact Sheet

Our History: This society was originally founded on May 23, 1913 by 15 physicians and businessmen in New York City. The name back then was American Society for the Control of Cancer (ASCC). The name American Cancer Society was adopted in 1945. By 2013, the American Cancer Society has reorganized nationally, and brings more awareness more than ever today.

Our Vision: During that time, the word “cancer” was considered not appropriate in public, and with that being said, the founders’ agenda was to raise awareness of cancer before making any other progress in finding research. Therefore, we are now trying to bring even more awareness to cancer, that way people will start taking care of themselves and become healthier as well.

Our Purpose: Our purpose is to make sure people know about cancer. We have created many different journals and pamphlets about cancer and have given them to every possible clinic and hospital. We are trying to make sure everyone knows how cancer can not only affect your body, but also the people who are close to you.

###

Our Goals: Some of the goals we have are that by 2015 we plan to have a 25% reduction in incidence and a 50% reduction in mortality. Both goals are unlikely to occur, but we try to set our goals high, that way we can see if we can actually do it. With this plan, we hope that we will be able to succeed, but it is more so unlikely to happen.

 

Our Call to Action: Our call to action is to help people   stay well and get well by finding cures and fighting back. By helping people stay well, we help them take the steps to prevent cancer or detect it at its earliest, most treatable stage. We fund groundbreaking research that helps us understand cancer’s causes, how best to prevent it, and discover new ways to cure it. And by us fighting back, we work with lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and rally communities worldwide to join the fight.
