Family-friendly Activities for All Ages
Clarksville, TN – In the midst of global change and economic recovery, on the home front families continue to be affected by cancer, touching lives in communities across the country. An equal opportunity disease, various forms of cancer affect both the young and old, people of all ethnicities, on all socio-economic levels.
These realities make the dollars donated and volunteer hours devoted to the American Cancer Society—a part of Clarksville for many years—critically important. Local volunteers are a huge part of a nationwide effort to save lives from cancer, but additional people are needed for the progress to continue.
Celebrating More Birthdays, Strength & Courage, Prelude to Main Event
