“Support from businesses and groups like you all at Welcome Federal Credit Union is the lifeblood of the American Cancer Society,” said Rachel Urban, Executive Director at the American Cancer Society. “It fuels our work and impact. Welcome Federal Credit Union is a phenomenal partner and group who understands our critical mission and really gets behind our work and our lifesaving mission.”

The partnership between Welcome Credit Union and the American Cancer Society is making a difference. ACS is 3.5 million volunteers strong. ACS attacks cancer through every angle, from breakthrough research and direct service, to public education and behavior change. Just in North Carolina alone, ACS is funding more than $12.25 million in research, which includes major research partners at Duke University, University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, and Wake Forest University.

“My team and I are beyond grateful for this support and we know that our impact reaches thousands in this area every year,” Urban said. “Our relentless mission to save lives and fight this disease is powerful. Thank you, on behalf of the Central and Eastern NC team and our area board at the American Cancer Society.”
