The global coronavirus pandemic has posed a serious challenge to the American Cancer Society’s ability to provide cancer patients and their caregivers support during an unprecedented time. On Tuesday, May 5, the American Cancer Society is asking for the public’s support during #GivingTuesdayNow.
“The impact of coronavirus is particularly serious for people with cancer, and yet just when people need us most, Relay For Life and other events that fuel our mission have been postponed,” said Kate Corsitto. “We simply can’t leave cancer patients to fight this alone, so we are asking the public to consider helping however they can.”
Thanks to an anonymous donor, donations to ACS on #GivingTuesdayNow will be matched to a total of $50,000.
The American Cancer Society continues to assist patients with critical support and information which is especially important during the pandemic.
