The American Cancer Society has been helping cancer patients and their families for more than 100 years.

The local chapter has provided services and helped to raise funds since 1946.

Karen Jakiel, Sr. Representative for Community Engagement said, "We help people stay well, get well. We work on funding and we fight back against the disease. We are the largest non-government, non-commercial funder of cancer research in the United States."
