The time is NOW. We have to be bold and rise up in the fight against cancer. The American Cancer Society and the Night of Wine & Roses Executive Committee is committed to the well-being of cancer patients and caregivers who are central to our mission. Due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic we have decided to produce our second Night of Wine virtual live event on Thursday, July 22, 2021 at 7:30pm. This is the only way to assure the safety of our attendees, staff, and volunteers.
We are privileged to honor four exceptional individuals:
Community Shining Stars
Jeffries & Rona Shein
Bruce Haffty, MD, MS
Chair of Radiation Oncology at Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey
4th Annual Judith A. Hoffman Humanitarian Awardee
Penelope Lattimer, Ph.D
The American Cancer Society is working every day to advance research, deliver lifesaving programs and services, and ensure continued public discussion about the important issues in cancer. We have contributed to great progress in the fight against cancer. Our work has helped lead to a 31% decline in the US cancer death rate since 1991, and 2.2% in the last year resulting in 3.2 million fewer deaths during that time. We must protect the interests of our patients and researchers.
We need your support to attack cancer from every angle. Cancer doesn't quit… and neither will the American Cancer Society.
For more than 100 years, The American Cancer Society has been leading the fight to end cancer. With your support, we have helped usher in an era where more people survive cancer than ever before. By translating our research findings into action, we've seen a 20% decline in US cancer death rates since the early 1990s.
