AMAC Partners With the Scott Hamilton Cares Foundation to Fight Cancer

According to the American Cancer Society, 21.4 million people will be diagnosed with Cancer by the year 2030. As of now, it is safe to say everyone knows at least one person who has been affected by the disease. Cancer can be devastating to say the least.

Many traditional treatments can be painful, time-consuming and the aftereffects devastating, but it shouldn’t be. Therefore, AMAC has partnered with the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation, which was founded by Olympic Gold Medalist and Cancer survivor Scott Hamilton in 2014. He shares the same ideal for what the future of Cancer should be.

“I see a day where everyone survives cancer. A day when no one suffers their way through their treatments. A day cancer does no harm. Our body holds the keys to surviving this insidious disease, and only through the research we are funding that we can unlock the keys to a much brighter future – a future celebrating survivors.”

—Scott Hamilton

CARES stands for Cancer Alliance for Research Education and Survivorship, and this is precisely what they strive to accomplish. The Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation funds innovative research to accelerate the advancement of less toxic treatments for isolated cancers and tumors. They hope that through research, they can uncover treatments with less harmful side effects, and one day eliminate the threat of Cancer completely.

Ground-breaking research is being done every day, but only by the support of those dedicated to helping will we meet these goals. Together AMAC and the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation have pledged to stand up to Cancer. Now we turn to you and ask for your support. With your gift, we can fund research that will make available new treatments that diminish the side effects and suffering from traditional cancer treatment and bring hope to individuals diagnosed with Cancer.
