American Cancer Society

ezStorage is proud to be able to help organizations in the Baltimore, Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. area. For the end of the 2014 Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are shining the spotlight on The American Cancer Society of Baltimore. ezStorage donates the use of 4 storage units for the American Cancer Society of Baltimore at different facilities across the organization’s coverage  area.  We are happy to help support an organization that “helps create a world with less cancer and more birthdays! “ The American Cancer Society, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation, is the largest voluntary health organization in the United States. The American Cancer Society is “a nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to preventing cancer, saving lives and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service.” The organization, originally named the American Society of the Control of Cancer, was created in 1913 by 15 prominent physicians and business leaders in New York City in order to raise awareness of the disease of cancer to the public. Up until then, cancer was rarely mentioned in public and a cancer diagnosis meant certain death.  Today, the American Cancer Society has raised over $1 billion in resources annually to help cancer patients stay healthy, find a cure and fight the disease. There are over 14 million cancer survivors in the United States alone who are alive today because of the help of the American Cancer Society.

American Cancer Society of Baltimore

The American Cancer Society of Baltimore has two offices in the Baltimore area: 7500 Greenway Center Drive, Greenbelt, Maryland and the main Baltimore office at 8219 Town Center Drive.  The local organization shares the daily goals of the American Cancer Society of: Helping You Stay Well, Helping You Get Well, Finding Cures, Fighting Back, and Access to Care. The local affiliates achieve these goals by providing many services to the Baltimore area from support groups to transportation for treatment. Other services include patient advocacy, cancer screenings and services, referral services and smoking cessation information.  The American Cancer Society also provides a facility called Hope Lodge, in Baltimore to provide a home away from home for cancer patients and their families while they are going through treatment at local hospitals.  The facility provides an inviting environment with 26 guest rooms, a common kitchen area, a great room, computer work stations, cancer support programs and services and transportation to and from treatment within a 3 mile radius of the facility.

How to Support the American Cancer Society

There are many fund-raising and awareness events held throughout the year for the American Cancer Society. You can participate in your local Relay for Life events, volunteer to help at events, or even be an advocate to help pass laws to defeat cancer!  The local events, such as the Relay for Life walks help to raise funds that stay within the community.  Watching or participating in an opening ceremony for Relay for Life is an extremely moving experience!  The help that the American Cancer Society provides from informational pieces on what questions to ask your doctors to help with dietary or daily needs are extremely helpful for the cancer patient and their families.
