World Renowned Cancer Centers Implore Americans to Donate $1 to Make Change and Accelerate Cancer Research
Date:5/8/2008

BOSTON, May 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The Cancer Research Alliance, an organization comprised of 12 of the nation's top cancer centers, is asking 303 million Americans to exercise their power over cancer by donating $1 to cancer research efforts this Mother's Day through Father's Day.

The campaign, dubbed the "Infinite Power of One(TM)" has two key goals: to activate Americans everywhere to take matters into their own hands by joining together to 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, 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 online to celebrate the infinite power that one person and one dollar can make on our health.

The Cancer Research Alliance is comprised of 12 of the nation's best cancer centers. Each one is a NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center -- the highest distinction bestowed by the National Cancer Institute. Member institutions include:

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

Fox Chase Cancer Center

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of Iowa
