Some 1,2000 volunteers will launch the 1976 Residential Cancer Crusade in Alamance County Sunday, according to Mr. and Mrs. Tom Sherman, chairpersons for the Alamance County unit of the American Cancer Society. Primary objectives of the crusade include: letting residents of Alamance County know and understand the life - saving facts about cancer; to show how essential early detection and prompt treatment in dealing with cancer is; to present the value of an annual physical checkup as an instrument of early detection and the importance of more research in solving the cancer problem. "The 1,500,000 Americans now alive who have been saved from cancer emphasizes the effectiveness of educational, research and service programs," Sherman pointed out. "Education leading to early detection and treatment alone could save half of those who develop cancer. Only one in three is now saved. More research, for which greater funds are needed, is the only hope for a complete control of cancer. "Knowing the needs," Sherman continued, "we are confident the people of Alamance County will respond. It is not only a duty but a privilege. There is no greater privilege than helping to save lives."
