PMIR raising money for the American Cancer Society

By October 3, 2012 October 25th, 2012 Events, PMIR in the Community

Have you ever wondered what the world would look like without cancer? We have. With a projected 1.6 million new cases and over a half-million estimated related deaths this year alone in the US*, cancer remains one of the leading causes of death. It’s likely that you have been affected in some way by this epidemic, whether it is through a loved one who has battled this disease, or if you have been a victim yourself. Most everyone can share an experience with cancer, along with the physical and emotional pain this disease inflicts on its sufferers. But there is hope – hope that one day cancer will be an exception, not a rule.

At Pain Management & Injury Relief (PMIR), our physicians and staff truly understand and have seen first-hand the physical and emotional pain associated with this epidemic. We believe in supporting the hope for a cancer-free tomorrow. On Saturday, October 13th, the city of Simi Valley will be hosting its annual Relay for Life event, in support of the American Cancer Society (ACS). Relay for Life is a 24-hour event in which survivors and supporters band together to raise money and walk for a cure. The Simi Valley Relay for Life is currently one of the largest cancer walk events for ACS in the county, and this year they’re aiming to raise $305,000.

PMIR has chosen to sponsor and participate in this prestigious event, because we are passionate about finding a cure. You can support the cause by donating to the American Cancer Society on behalf of our team. PMIR set a goal to raise $25,000 on behalf of the Simi Relay. We have raised $4,365, but to reach our goal we need your help! Donate now and put your name on a cure for cancer. The urgency of this cause cannot be stressed enough – act now and your extra dollar might be just what we need to find a cure.

If you or a loved one is battling cancer, consider working with a pain management specialist to manage the pain associated with your condition and treatments. PMIR serves communities in Los Angeles and Ventura County, and is experienced in treating cancer pain.
