  1. The American Cancer Society is very much a global organization. The American Cancer Society works with regional partners to convene and foster collaborations that mobilize a global grassroots network of cancer volunteers, experts and advocates in Sub-Saharan Africa, India and Latin America to advance cancer control policy and awareness, including the African Organization for Research and Training, African First Ladies, and regional partnerships that focus on women’s cancers in India and Latin America. "Our global work is focused on lower-income countries, where we work across the full cancer continuum, predominantly in national referral hospitals, often the only facilities where cancer is currently addressed. We seek measurable results in countries where Ministries of Health, hospitals and civil society partners can make the most significant impact." The Christmas Expo, in 2018, raised $20,495 US to help fulfill an urgent need by funding TWO Patient Navigators to work with the more than 1500 cancer patients at the Kenyatta National Hospital in Nairobi. Here is the link to a personal video to the Christmas Expo from the the Patient Navigator coordinator at the Kenyatta National Hospital, as well as a thank you from Kristen Solt, Managing Director, Global Initiatives, American Cancer Society. The Fantasy Faire, for the past 2 years has also had their efforts dedicated to the Kenya Hope Lodge, which is being constructed by the American Cancer Society to provide free lodging. The Faire has raised more than $118,000 US in 2018 & 2019 combined to support the project. Here is their personal video thank you from Kenya to the Fantasy Faire, as well as a note from Kristen Solt. Information on the overall Global Initiative is available on the American Cancer website, should you wish to get information. Our fundraising this year is focused on the VR Goggle program run in the United States, however, should you feel strongly about only donating to the global initiative, the link to do Global Donation Payments is located here. We still hope to see you at the Expo to enjoy the entertainment, build a snowman, take in the sights, view the 4th Reveal Homes.
