ABOUT AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY
For more than 100 years, The American Cancer Society (ACS) has been leading the fight to end cancer. With your support, we have helped usher in an era where more people survive cancer than ever before. By translating our research findings into action, we’ve seen a 29% decline in US cancer death rates since 1991.
In 2021—with the help of countless volunteers—American Cancer Society in Michigan raised $6 million. In turn, ACS invested over $11 million into Michigan’s cancer research, programs, grants, and services. This remarkable investment, into our state and community, is rarely seen from a national non-profit and clearly demonstrates American Cancer Society’s commitment to Michigan.
American Cancer Society in Michigan is honored to invest over $2.4 million in West Michigan to support patients, caregivers, research, and survivors in our communities. We offer support, education, lodging, and transportation to patients locally. ACS partners with Spectrum Health, University of Michigan West, Mercy Health, Michigan State University, Van Andel Institute, Western Michigan University, and more to help implement the best care, top notch programs, and impactful research.
Michigan researchers have the talent to find the answers. Taste of Hope: A Chefs Competition proceeds will fund Michigan researchers seeking solutions to end cancer. During the Fund the Mission portion of the evening, you will be invited to invest in your fellow community members who are seeking answers to our most complicated cancer questions. Guests can support and invest in Michigan to help light the path to a brighter future for our whole nation. If you would like to discuss how to support the Michigan Cancer Research Fund, please email Ginger Feldman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
