"We believe that you can't mea- sure human life in dollars and cents. Certainly not the half million lives of the men. women and children who develop cancer every year. Last year the people of America confirm- ed our belief. We know they will again give us their voluntary and generous support to help sustain the momentum of our three ~rograms of Research. Service and Education. "The Cancer Society supports more than 1,000 scientists who are trying to defeat cancer for all time. But there is so much we can do about this disease right now. Right now. we can. and mIl~t, try to save the lives that are wasted every ycal'. I refer to the 85,000 people who die of cancer simply because they don't get to the doctor in time.

There are areas in these programs that urgently need expansion. If we can meet these unmet needs, we can save more lives. It is as simple as that."

It will continue to be true until the disease is conquered--as it will be, given time and money. '2VIeanwhile. it's up to you to guard your family, to give them the best possible chance in the event that cancer strikes. And better still. to do what you can to prevent can- cer. "We don't know enough about the prevention of this grim disease, be- cause we still have not solved the mystery of X, the monster cell, But we do know that a regular health checkup often unearths a harmless' condition that might, if neglected, lead to cancer, And a checkup can also find a tumor while it is still small and hopeful of cure."
