Thank you all for shining your light and guiding us all to make this world better for all and raising over $20,000 to help fund cancer-fighting research. 

In our lifetime, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer. The money you give or raise will go towards local cancer research, prevention and treatment and will make an impact in the fight to find a cure. Thank you for your generosity and may it lead to a cancer-free world!
