As I am sure you know, cancer patients and survivors are at greater risk for COVID-19. To keep people safe, we had to cancel our in-person fundraising events through June. This means we are facing a revenue shortfall no one could have predicted.

You have stepped up.

When we asked, you gave. When we moved from in-person to online events, you moved with us. We are all having to find new ways of doing things right now, and the easy way would be to simply disengage.

You engaged.

You gave. You live-streamed. You provided support for cancer patients. And thanks to you, we have been able to continue our essential services. Researchers are still working towards getting us closer to a world without cancer. Our 24/7 helpline for answers and support is adding video. We have been able to step up our resources for cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers so they can get answers on our website, social media, and podcast feed in real-time.

Thank you for continuing the fight against cancer with us. We are here for cancer patients because of you, and for that, we are so, so grateful.

Thank you.
