Good luck and don’t over do it!
I wanted to invite all of you to join me on August 28, 2010 at Campbell University (Buies Creek, NC) for the 2nd annual ACCRF 5k Run. I was part of the inaugural event and had a terrific time; host Kim Schmidlin runs a first rate event. I know it may be too far for some of you, but all I ask is that you give it some consideration. At the very least, this will give you an idea of the grassroots work being done to raise cancer awareness SPECIFICALLY for Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma (ACC) and the Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma Research Foundation.
The web page is now live at www.accrf5krun.com; registrations (and donations) can now be made online this year!!!
Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma (ACC) is a rare cancer typically originating in the head and neck region. This malignancy has a slow – and sometimes relentless-progression with a tendency to grow along nerves. Currently there are limited treatment options for individuals fighting this disease – surgical removal of the tumor and radiation – as no effective chemotherapy treatments have been discovered.
