help lock the
door against cancer
This is a story about a door and two keys. The story
will have more point if, first, we state three facts:
• Every 3 minutes an American dies of
• 25% of those who die could have been
• Many cancers can be cured — if de
tected in time.
Now here is the story. A door can be built to repel
this deadly killer, but the door locks only if two
keys are turned. Science holds one key. Your
money can provide the other.
Your dollars support cancer research which
some day may find the causes and cure of the dis
ease. Your money supports an education prograqi
that teaches men and women how to recognize
cancer in its early stages, when immediate treat
ment can save their lives.
Won’t you help us lock the floor? Give as gener
ously as you can. Give more than before. Give to
guard those you love.
