Society's Medal of Honor to be Awarded on November 21

NEW YORK, Nov. 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Cancer Society -- the nation's leading voluntary health organization and largest non-governmental funder of cancer research and discovery -- will present its highest honor, the Medal of Honor, to four Americans who have made outstanding contributions to the fight against cancer.
