“I joined the ACS CAN Project VIVE because I am passionate about providing health information about smoking in my community. This is in hopes that my community becomes smoke-free as quickly as possible and so future generations grow up in a smoke-free area, knowing the negative repercussions of their actions if they decide to smoke.”
“My experience with ACS CAN was a blessing in disguise. As I’m not a perfect nor claim to be in my walk in life this experience has been one where I’ve gotten to connect with individuals who were strangers and are now life time friends. I’ve felt supported during a time where things did not seem too bright but I am grateful to have been able to be a voice not only for my grandmother but also for all the other caregivers/warriors/angels.”
“Working with Cancer Action Network has been informative and very rewarding and I look forward to being able to continue working with them in the future as the work they do is so important. I am proud to be a member of such a dedicated team. They are truly doing work which will change lives and impact communities in a positive way!!!!”
“As a volunteer for the VIVE project, I have played an important role in hopes to create a healthy community for our families. I’ve had the opportunity to advocate for smoke free policies and strongly believe a smoke free community is essential to improving our health. You can too begin working toward a healthier community today by being part and volunteering for VIVE.”
“El Cáncer me afectado a mi familia y quiero ser parte de la solución para poder ayudar a todos que no pueden. El humo y el tabaco en la comunidad es algo que podemos resolver y acabar para el futuro de nuestro jóvenes y comunidades.”
