WHEN: Tuesday, May 13, 2008, at 11:00 AM

WHO: Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, County Executive Ken Ulman, Young Adult Cancer Survivors, and local businesses and organizations

WHY: Unacceptable gaps exist between what we know about preventing, screening for and treating cancer and what we do. These gaps in action are responsible for 180,000 of the 560,000 lives we lose to cancer each year. United we will make cancer a national priority and end needless death and suffering from the disease.

About the Lance Armstrong Foundation

Founded in 1997 by cancer survivor and champion cyclist Lance Armstrong, the LAF has raised more than $250 million for the fight against cancer.
