"I joined the ABOA over ten years ago to honor my relatives who had died from cancer. Being a member of the ABOA means that you are directly supporting life-saving and cutting-edge cancer research. Involvement in the ABOA allows our members to take back some power over cancer and know that they are making a difference for their families and communities now into the future."
