Church urges members to support cancer society

The First Presidency has released a statement urging Church members and others to support fund-raising efforts of the American Cancer Society.

The statement is as follows:"The Church recognizes that several worthwhile organizations are active in various communities in seeking contributions for charity care or research for the prevention and treatment of serious illnesses. Among these is the American Cancer Society, which is conducting its annual Community Crusade, an educational and fund-raising effort. The Church urges its members and all concerned citizens to be as supportive of such worthy causes as time and means allow."
