The American Cancer
Society is celebrating a huge anniversary. They will turn 100 next week, and
they kicked off festivities this week.
Every year, the American
Cancer Society has a fundraiser, the Cattle Baron's Ball, where they honor a
cancer survivor. But this year, they'll be doing things a little differently by
honoring the faces of cancer in northwest Ohio.
"What we're trying to do
is really honor those people, and the faces of cancer aren't just people with
cancer – it's caregivers, it's physicians, it's researchers, it's supporters of
those people with cancer," explained Mike Flis, chairman of the American Cancer
Society. "It can be really anyone that's come in contact with cancer."
They kicked off the
celebration with a wine and cheese event, and hope to spread the message to the
community to nominate their loved ones.
"It's a really unique and
humbling experience, to be honored for an organization that is trying its
darnedest to not only conquer this, but to not have it exist in the future,"
said Robert Thompson, who was nominated as a face of cancer.
It costs $100 to nominate
someone. The honoree would then receive a ticket to the Cattle Baron's Ball,
and their picture will be on a wall of nominees at the ball. There is no limit
to the faces of cancer.
