Close to home

During October, American, it’s team members and customers come together to raise much needed research funds, share stories and more importantly, celebrate victories. As every patient waits to hear the words “last treatment”, “remission” or “cancer free”, your support allows those words to become a reality and means the world to survivors like Felicia, Patrizia, Claudia, and Rita.

“It is thanks to my family that I found the strength to fight. I’m living with my cancer. Life for me is a ‘carpe diem’ but I never forget to smile to life and above all I’ll never give up.”
