The American Cancer Society of Nevada’s mission has not changed. Cancer does not stop, and neither do we: We are still fighting cancer and advocating for some of the most at risk during this crisis, our cancer patients and survivors. Over 80% of the calls that we have received to our 1-800 number in the last month have been related to the pandemic. We need support to keep vital services like our helpline running and to ensure that after this crisis has passed, we are still saving more lives from cancer in the years ahead. For information and resources, call 1-800-227-2345 or visit cancer.org. To donate locally, please visit RelayForLife.org/SNV or cancer.org/donatelocal.
Join St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for its Heart of Fashion Virtual Fashion Week, June 14-19, by becoming a Partner In Hope. As a Partner In Hope, your monthly gift ensures families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. On Friday, June 19, we will come together virtually to celebrate the mission and to continue our commitment to the promise we’ve made to the tens of thousands of families who depend on us no matter what else we are facing. Learn more by visiting stjude.org/lvfashion or contacting [email protected].
