Cancer has no nationality and neither does Relay For Life. Each year, more than 4 million people in 26 countries take part in Relay For Life, uniting communities and taking action against cancer.
The American Cancer Society has been active in Second Life for 15 years.
With the help of hundreds of volunteers and thousands who have donated, we have raised close to $3.6 million USD via Relay For Life, Strides Campaigns in October and annual events like Fantasy Faire, Home & Garden Expo, Christmas Expo, and Sci-Fi Expo.
The American Cancer Society also provides services inworld via information portals, cancer survivor support groups and cancer caregiver support groups at Hope Haven on American Cancer Society Island.
This website is designed to let people know about all of the amazing ACS support services and fundraising activities happening in Second Life and the equally amazing teams of people who work together to make it all happen.
