A Cancer Victimâs Dying Wish Sends a Powerful Message to the World with the Launch of 1MillionAgainstCancer.org
Online PR News – 15-December-2009 – – Deadwood, SD â December 9, 2009 â His name was Kevin Bell and he died from colon cancer on September 10, 2009. He was only 41 years old when diagnosed and his family had no history of cancer.
Kevin, like millions of other cancer victims, did not learn he had cancer until he became sick and it was too late for doctors to save him. Kevinâs dying wish was to raise money for cancer research to help find a cure for cancer and to prevent millions of other people from needlessly dying of cancer by creating a global program to promote the importance of getting screened for cancer early and often. From Kevinâs wish came the creation of â1 Million Against Cancerâ www.1millionagainstcancer.org.
www.1millionagainstcancer.org is a non-profit organization where people can purchase individually numbered limited edition t-shirts that start at #1 and go to #1,000,000. Every t-shirt has a unique number printed on it. 30% of proceeds are donated to The American Cancer Society Relay For Life.
Kevin Bellâs mission for 1 Million Against Cancer as stated by Kevin is as follows: âWe created 1 Million Against Cancer to join the fight to find a cure for cancer. By selling t-shirts that are individually numbered 1 through 1,000,000, funds are donated to research to help find a cure for cancer. One of the last items on my âbucket listâ is to still be alive to see the 1,000,000th t-shirt auctioned off.â Tragically, Kevin died from colon cancer shortly after the development of www.1millionagainstcancer.org and was never able to see his wish come true.

That is why Kevinâs dream has become the mission of our two children and meâto keep Kevinâs dream alive and move forward raising awareness and money to fight this horrible disease. By supporting Kevinâs dream, you help us keep a part of him alive and hopefully prevent others from such an early and tragic death.â
