Cancer comes in many forms and can affect anyone: the young and old, men and women, rich or poor. It has no racial or spiritual boundaries. Thousands of people die every day from cancer, which is the second deadliest disease in the world, according to the American Cancer Society.
More research needs to be done to find a cure for the 100 different types of diseases that we categorize as cancer. In today’s shaky economy, more and more people are going without health coverage, increasing the mortality rate of cancer, which needs to be diagnosed in the early stages so a person can receive proper treatment. The more people who dedicate their time, knowledge and funding to discover ways to treat and cure cancer means there will be one less person we know and love who will die from this life-threatening disease.
No one is immune to its effects, and everyone knows at least one person who has been affected by this disease. We’ve decided to sponsor a giveaway starting Nov. 7, 2011 (8 PM EST). At that time we will post a tweet to our twitter page with the official entry link.
For every entry that we receive, 10 cents will be donated to Stand Up To Cancer. Stand Up To Cancer was launched in 2008 as a cancer initiative group that brings together patients, doctors, advocates and lawmakers in collaborative research efforts in the hopes to find new treatments and cures for cancer. Through ongoing fundraising efforts, Stand Up To Cancer and generous donators have already given over $80 million toward cancer research.
The androsForm giveaway contest will begin on Nov. 7, 2011 at 8 p.m. EST and end on Nov. 10, 2011 at 12 p.m. EST. From the available entries, five winners will be chosen to receive a Carie Small “Tackle Cancer” T-shirt.
Carie Small was nominated as a 2010 “All Fantasy Player” of the Lingerie Football League (and is the lovely lady in the picture above). Carie has a special interest when it comes to the fight against cancer and the ongoing efforts of cancer research. As a cancer survivor herself, she has a fiery passion to literally “tackle” cancer in every form it takes until a cure is found.
To ensure the correct amount of proceeds are dedicated to cancer research, a third-party hosting service provided by 63squares will monitor the number of entries into the contest. From the final data gathered at the end of the contest on November 10th at 12 p.m. EST, androsForm will dedicate the appropriate amount to Stand Up To Cancer.
Every cent given to cancer research means new treatments can be discovered for our friends and family who must deal with the effects of this deadly disease. It means that one more person will have a chance to survive cancer.
