Cancer relay meeting

Relay For Life of Rock River will be having a speaker from the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network when it meets at 6:30 p.m. May 16 at the Watertown Senior Center, 514 S. First St., Watertown.

ACS-CAN is the nation’s leading cancer advocacy organization that is working every day to make cancer issues a national priority.

Achieving a world free from the pain and suffering of cancer requires a comprehensive public policy agenda. The mission and thus the work includes a strong focus on preventing cancer, seeking new cures and treatments and ensuring all Americans have access to the medical care that could save their life. ASC-CAN also supports the determination and courage of cancer patients and survivors by working to improve their quality of life both during treatment and after it has ended.

The enormous record of accomplishment is a result of their volunteers and staff relentlessly advocating at every level of government, from local city councils and county commissions to every state legislature, the U.S. Congress and the federal government.

A second meeting will be held on Saturday May 18 at Tribeca Gallery Café & Books, 401 E. Main St. at 8 a.m.

The Relay For Life will update the information on its event that will be held Aug. 2 at the Watertown High School. Teams and survivors are still being sought for the event.

To register a team or a survivor, go on line at www.relayforlife.org/rockriverwi.
