The American Cancer Society
will launch its annual educational
and fund-raising Crusade in Holt
County, April 22 through 27.
Again this year, the Society
will emphasize “To Cure More,
Give More" and “Fight Cancer
with a Checkup and a Check.”
With more than 1,200,000 Amer
icans now alive cured of cancer,
and the prospect of saving many
more lives, stresses the need for
a successful 1963 Crusade.
The first goal of the 1963 Cru
sade will be to get more people
to doctors in tome for early
treatment. An annual health
check-up is a person’s best pro
tection against death from Can
Another part of the first goal is
the objective of making sure that
physicians are informed on the
latest methods of diagnosis and
treatment. When a person goes to
a doctor, he shojld receive all
the benefits of the best medical
knowledge and skills.
The second goal of the 1963
Crusade, will be more much need
ed money for research. Only
through research can we hope
eventually to save the one half
of those who develop cancer who
can not now be saved.
