By 2010, cancer is projected to become the leading cause of death worldwide. More than ever, your support is critical to connect survivors to the resources they need, raise awareness, engage communities and leaders in the fight against cancer and fight the stigma that often surrounds this disease.
Make your tax-deductible gift today so we can continue to build upon the success of 2009 and make even greater strides in 2010. With the help of supporters like you, this past year LIVESTRONG:
- Held the first-of-its-kind LIVESTRONG Global Cancer Summit in Dublin, Ireland, where more than 500 attendees from 65 countries met to build a movement in the global fight against cancer.
- Created an international campaign around Lance Armstrong?s return to professional cycling to raise awareness of the global burden of cancer and empower survivors.
- Provided direct support and educational resources to thousands of individuals dealing with cancer.
- Launched LIVESTRONG.org/espanol to provide our valuable tools, support and resources to a Spanish-speaking audience.
Cancer affects everyone. It?s a shocking fact that 30 percent of the cancers people are living with today are preventable, and another one-third of cancers are treatable if detected early. Together, we can save lives in 2010 through education, support and service to the cancer community.
Join us as we fight for the 28 million people around the world living with cancer. With your help we are able to share the most important resource of all?hope. Hope that one day we will live in a world without cancer. Please make your gift today.
