Moffitt Cancer Center Joins National Campaign To Implore Americans To Donate $1 To Accelerate Cancer Research
Date:5/9/2008

TAMPA, Fla., May 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The Cancer Research Alliance, an organization comprised of 12 of the nation's best cancer centers including Moffitt Cancer Center, is asking all 303 million Americans to exercise their power over cancer by stepping up and donating $1 to cancer research efforts this Mother's Day through Father's Day.

The campaign, dubbed the "Infinite Power of One(TM)" campaign has two key goals: to activate Americans everywhere to take matters into their own hands, join together and exercise their collective power over cancer, and second, to raise much needed dollars to accelerate innovative cancer research at the participating cancer centers.

The public can join the "Infinite Power of One(TM)" campaign by visiting the campaign's sponsor, http://www.celebrations.com from May 11 through June 15 to donate. After donating, each person will be asked to add his or her own photo to the "Infinite Power of One" Healing Mosaic to celebrate the infinite power that one person and one dollar can make on our health. Proceeds will benefit cancer research at all member cancer centers.

Located in Tampa, Florida, Moffitt Cancer Center (http://www.moffitt.org) is the only Florida-based cancer center with the NCI designation as a Comprehensive Cancer Center for its excellence in research and contributions to clinical trials, prevention and cancer control. Moffitt currently has 15 affiliates in Florida, one in Georgia and two in Puerto Rico. Additionally, Moffitt is a member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, a prestigious alliance of the country's leading cancer centers, and is listed in U.S. News & World Report as one of "America's Best Hospitals" for cancer, as well as for ear, nose and throat. Moffitt's sole mission is to contribute to the prevention and cure of cancer.
