A Cancer Victim’s Dying Wish Sends a Powerful Message to the World with the Launch of 1MillionAgainstCancer.org
Online PR News – 15-December-2009 – – Deadwood, SD – December 9, 2009 – 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. Kevin’s 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 Kevin’s wish came the creation of “1 Million Against Cancer” 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 Bell’s mission for 1 Million Against Cancer as stated by Kevin is as follows: “We 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 ‘bucket list’ is to still be alive to see the 1,000,000th t-shirt auctioned off.” Tragically, Kevin died from colon cancer shortly after the development of www.1millionagainstcancer.org and was never able to see his wish come true.

Roxy Bell, Kevin Bell’s widow, states, “Kevin isn’t with us physically, but he is with us constantly in spirit. That is why Kevin’s dream has become the mission of our two children and me—to keep Kevin’s dream alive and move forward raising awareness and money to fight this horrible disease. By supporting Kevin’s dream, you help us keep a part of him alive and hopefully prevent others from such an early and tragic death.”
To help support www.1millionagainstcancer.org, people can purchase an attractive and individually numbered “1 Million Against Cancer” t-shirt. The shirts only cost $19.95 and 30% of the proceeds are donated to The American Cancer Society Relay For Life.
