One in three people living in the United States will hear the words, “You
have cancer,” in their lifetime. Since so many of us have been touched by

American Cancer Society Relay For Life event.
So, here’s the forecast: The Weather Channel has teamed up with the American

fundraise by supporting our on-air Team Captain challenge. Next week, we

Nation to join us today and:
* Tune in to AMHQ next week and encourage your family and friends to do so.
We have exciting things planned to launch our new relationship that will
include cancer survivor stories from across the country. One of those
survivors is a brave 10 year old named Tori, who fundraised by participating
in Relay For Life fundraising pageants in her hometown. Tune in next week to
hear Tori’s story and the inspiring stories of other survivors who have been
helped by the American Cancer Society.
* Download The Weather Channel app
on your mobile device to stay connected to the weather for the Relay For

each other to see which of them can raise the most funds in support of the
Relay For Life movement.
