ALONE WE CAN DO SO LITTLE
TOGETHER WE CAN DO SO MUCH
The success of The American Cancer Society in Second Life is all about teamwork. People from all over the world volunteering their skill sets, becoming friends and collaborating together on computers, laptops, and smart phones in Second Life .
The American Cancer Society in Second Life is the umbrella for many programs and services.
Hope Haven is both a source for
cancer information and also home to our virtual support groups for cancer survivors and caregivers.
It takes lots of volunteers being creative and collaborating together to make the American Cancer Society thrive in Second Life. It also takes a community of generous sponsors who financially support the programs and services in Second Life.
The American Cancer Society has been active in Second Life for 18 years.
With the help of hundreds of volunteers and thousands who have donated, we have raised well over
$4.7 million (USD) via Relay For Life, Strides Campaigns in October and annual MEGA events like
Fantasy Faire, Home & Garden Expo, Christmas Expo, and Sci-Fi Expo.
The American Cancer Society also provides services inworld via information portals, cancer survivor support groups and cancer caregiver support groups at Hope Haven on American Cancer Society Island.
This website is designed to let people know about all of the amazing ACS support services
and fundraising activities happening in Second Life and the equally amazing teams
of people who work together to make it all happen.
