Wednesday, Aug. 19, 2015 Dear Friends and Family, Next month I will again be going to Washington, D.C., as a volunteer for our American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) along with a volunteer and ACS CAN staffmembers from every Congressional district in the United States, over 600 of us in all• As in previous years, each of us will meet with our sena- tom and representative to ask for fimding for caner treat- ment and research, to make fighting cancer a national pri- ority. We l be stressing this again this year, knowing that cancer funding has decreased 22% over the past decade with devastating consequences. I am wri~ng you to ask for your help. There will be a night in Washington with a Lights of Hope Ceremony where each volunteer has raised money for Lights of Hope in honer of a loved one who has survived cancer or in memory of a loved one who lost the battle. These Lights of Hope will surround the reflecting pool in front of the Capitol and there will be a ceremony while thousands of lights shine! These Lights of Hope serve to remind me that each of us can be a light for a cure for cancer. This ceremony is always very emotional for me because, as you know, I am a cancer survivor, and so many of my family and friends have also had to deal with this devastat- ing ~. I would love to take many bags with my friends' and families' names on them and bags for my friends and family who want their friends and families to have a light shining in the Capitol, remem- bering and mJebrating them as we all stand in unity for a cure for cancer. I will be there in person, but I will be represent- ing each ofyouin spirit! If you are unable to be a part of this project, I under- stand and will surely involve you in our next endeavor to raise funds to END CANCER!
