National Volunteer Appreciation Week, April 11-15, is an important time to thank every volunteer for their time and energy. On behalf of the American Cancer Society, and especially on behalf of cancer patients and their loved ones, we would like to express our appreciation the volunteers of Dawson County. Without your efforts, we would not be able to help cancer patients get well and stay well, find cures, and fight back.
Dawson County is full of volunteers who fundraise year round for Relay For Life and Daffodil Days. We appreciate all that you do to help fund important cancer research and provide cancer patients with free services that help make treatment more bearable.
We are also blessed in Dawson County to have many volunteers that give us hours of their time to be Reach to Recovery and Road to Recovery volunteers. Your support of cancer patients’ efforts in the battle against cancer is truly appreciated!
The American Cancer Society is at work in communities all across the country providing programs aimed at reducing the risk of cancer, detecting cancer as early as possible, ensuring proper treatment, and empowering people facing cancer to cope and maintain the highest possible quality of life.
We are grateful to have dedicated, hard-working people like the Dawson County volunteers; thank you for providing the gift of another birthday.
