Cancer is a difficult disease.
It’s hard on the individual.
Hard on the families that love them.
And so exhausting that even treatment can be more draining than the disease itself.
So, when Charles Keeranan, a Content Developer at Scorpion, was given the opportunity to choose the recipient for a charitable donation on behalf of Scorpion, he didn’t flinch.
He chose the American Cancer Society.
“Donating to the American Cancer Society is a way of honoring my mother, who’s a survivor, as well as those who have also survived, those we have lost, and those who are still fighting. I want to provide hope to all cancer patients, help them fight their battles, and play a role in saving their lives.”
For more than a century, the American Cancer Society has been working to end cancer through research programs, patient services, and community initiatives.
Since 1913, here’s a glimpse of what the American Cancer Society has accomplished since its inception:
$4.6 billion invested in cancer research since 1946
6.3 million free rides to treatment for cancer patients
781,000 screenings contributed to in underserved communities since 2011
2.1 million cancer deaths averted since 1991
