May 22 ‘American Cancer Society Day’

DES MOINES — In honor of the American Cancer Society’s 100th birthday, Gov. Terry Branstad officially proclaimed May 22 as “American Cancer Society Day” and urges all residents of Iowa to join together to finish the fight against cancer.

The American Cancer Society was established in 1913 as American Society for the Control of Cancer, and after 100 years, has achieved many milestones in the fight against cancer. To commemorate the birthday, the Society’s advocacy affiliate, the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network worked with the governor’s office to secure the proclamation.
