Join us at the American Cancer Society Riviera “Lunch-In” on Friday, November 20th for a one-of-a-kind virtual event. Hear personal stories from a local cancer survivor and find out about cancer research happening locally. We’ll also honor a local doctor for their achievements here in Santa Barbara. You won’t want to miss our spectacular silent auction, and a few new surprises!
With your support, the American Cancer Society saves lives by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back against cancer. The American Cancer Society is working to finish the fight against every cancer in every community. We are the largest private, not-for-profit funder of cancer research in the United States, investing more than $4.6 billion since 1946. Thanks in part to our contributions, more than 1.5 million lives have been saved in the US in the past two decades. Now, that is a reason to celebrate, so please join us.
Locally, in 2019, we provided over 300 free rides and 33 free overnight accommodations for cancer patients receiving cancer treatment. In addition, over 400 hospital referrals and 300 residents were either provided with specialized services, such as free wigs, cancer information and additional free resources available in the community.
