DEARBORN HEIGHTS, Mich. — With the help of Arab American cancer survivors, the ACCESS Community Health and Research Center is raising funds to assist newly diagnosed cancer patients with some of the expenses they’ll face when seeking treatment. The public is invited to join ACCESS for “Strikes for Survivors,” a bowling fundraiser Monday, June 8 at Cherry Hill Lanes.
Monday, June 8, 2015 – 5:30 p.m.
Cherry Hill Lanes – 300 North Inkster Road, Dearborn Heights, MI 48127
ACCESS is offering two ways to support cancer patients: by visiting www.accesscommunity.org/supportcancerpatients to purchase tickets to attend the bowling fundraiser (tickets are $20 each and include bowling, shoes, pizza, soda and more) and/or to make a direct donation online.
“All of the net proceeds from the event will go to benefit cancer patients and serve their needs through ACCESS and the American Cancer Society. If you are unable to attend, please donate online. Together, we can do more to help cancer survivors,” said Zana Macki, an Arab American cancer survivor and long-time activist and supporter of ACCESS.
