Research is the most important aspect of the American Cancer Society. Since 1946, the American Cancer Society has helped to make nearly every major cancer research breakthrough.
Right now in Pittsburgh, the American Cancer Society has provided more than $4.5 million in research grants. So the next cancer breakthrough could happen in the City of Champions!
Help fund research and programs for cancer patients and families by making a donation to my Cherry Pickers team at the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Greater Cranberry Township.

Why am I very passionate about the American Cancer Society? Read my story here.
Thank you for reading this and helping to create a world with less cancer.
It’s simple: Cancer can affect everyone across the world.
Research done in Canada or England or Spain or the United States helps fight the global war on cancer.
In the United States, the American Cancer Society has worked for more than 100 years to make fighting cancer a priority. Together, with help of sister network the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, cancer is a priority.
But there’s so much more to do. Join the fight by donating and getting involved.

So I failed at 31 posts.
Maybe 12 leading up to Christmas? Let’s try.
One of my favorite Christmas things is finding all of my gifts Christmas morning labeled from Santa.
Gifts are shared Christmas Eve from my brother and me to everyone and from my uncle.
Then on Christmas morning we open gifts from Santa.
I’ve never understood why my parents never have given my brother and me any gifts, though??
Happy eighth and final night of Hanukkah!
