Utah State Lead Ambassador
Annalee Foster has been a volunteer with ACS CAN since 2013 and with ACS since 2009. Annalee prides herself on the work she has done since beginning this journey. In addition to fighting to end cancer, Annalee lives in Vernal and is a radio DJ and an office manager. She is also a member of The Elks Lodge and volunteers with Trees for Charity and The Gobbler Thanksgiving 5K.
What is your proudest accomplishment as an ACS CAN volunteer?
Our state ACS CAN volunteers helped secure $2 million from our state budget to complete building our Hope Lodge. No other state has financially supported the building of a Hope Lodge in their state. To say I’m proud of our team of volunteers and staff would be an understatement.
Why is being an ACS CAN volunteer important to you?
All of the cancer awareness and fundraising in the world does no good if we can’t make cancer an issue with the government. We can’t eliminate cancer without the government making the health of its citizens a priority through legislation and adequate funding for research. ACS CAN gives everyone the voice to demand better from our leaders.
Why should others in your community get involved with ACS CAN?
Cancer affects 1 in 3 people. Whether the diagnosis is yours or a friend or loved ones, it’s statistically impossible to never be affected by cancer. ACS CAN gives everyone the opportunity to be involved, at any commitment level they are comfortable with, in the fight against a disease that could happen to anyone.
