American Cancer Society Proclamation

Posted: Updated:
Before beginning Tuesday mornings Wichita Falls City Council Meeting, Mayor Glen Barham read a proclamation to help bring awareness to the fight against cancer.

Representatives from the American Cancer Society and two cancer survivors received the proclamation.  It’s estimated in this year alone, nearly two-million people will be diagnosed with cancer.  At least half a million people will die from the disease.

This proclamation also serves as a reminder about the ACS’s largest fundraiser, which is Relay for Life.  It will be held at McNeil Junior High on June 13th.
