This year, the American Cancer Society's 4th annual Champions of Hope Gala of Milwaukee will be going virtual on Friday, November 13, 2020.
Join us for a one-of-a-kind evening featuring a signature cocktail w/demonstration, a spectacular auction, an inspiring program, and much more.
The American Cancer Society is working to finish the fight against every cancer in every community. We are the largest private, not-for-profit funder of cancer research in the United States, investing more than $4 billion since 1946.
Thanks in part to our contributions, more than 1.5 million lives have been saved in the US in the past two decades.
The future can be free from cancer.
We envision a future where our children will no longer live with the threat of cancer. Unfortunately, that future is at risk.
The impact of COVID-19 will reduce our ability to fund cancer research by 50% in 2020 -- our lowest investment this century if current trends continue.
We can’t and won’t allow progress to be put on hold because of COVID-19. At risk are more and better treatments and discoveries halted in its tracks. that will improve and save lives.
Throughout the pandemic, the American Cancer Society has been there 24/7 for anxious cancer patients and caregivers, listening to concerns and providing accurate, scientific information about COVID-19 and cancer.
Millions in cancer research could go unfunded. 1.4M calls could go unanswered. Nearly 500K patients could go without a free ride or place to stay while receiving treatment. That is what could be at stake this year alone.
There is no time to wait. We must be bolder, braver, and stronger than ever before.
The future can be free from cancer. And that future is in your hands RIGHT NOW.
Please join us in supporting the work of the American Cancer Society.
