    Nearly every single one of us will be touched by cancer at some point in our lives. Whether it be through a loved one's diagnosis or our own, cancer is a growing epidemic in this country and around the world.

     

    In an effort to fight cancer head-on, Marilyn Hess, her daughter McKenzie Lambright, and her niece, Angel Blain founded Dancers Against Cancer (DAC). The family-based charity sells T-shirts and organizes a variety of fundraisers to help raise money in support of local cancer patients and their families. "Hess said DAC all began when a niece had a childhood cancer that became active again when she was 20 years old. As an aunt and mother herself, Hess said she felt helpless. Hess, Lambright and Blain designed a logo for Dancers Against Cancer and printed it onto shirts and hoodies. In a matter of weeks they were able to sell 700 shirts." ~ Quote: Kirstin McQuivey, The Daily Herald.
