   TRIBUTE TO THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY ON THE OCCASION OF MAKING 
                     STRIDES AGAINST BREAST CANCER

                                 ______
                                 

                            HON. GWEN MOORE

                              of wisconsin

                    in the house of representatives

                       Wednesday, April 27, 2005

  Ms. MOORE of Wisconsin. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to express my 
gratitude to the American Cancer Society for its outstanding efforts to 
combat breast cancer.
  On May 1, the American Cancer Society will host its annual event, 
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. This year, Making Strides Against 
Breast Cancer will invite local residents to participate in a non-
competitive walk along Milwaukee's lakefront to raise money to fight 
breast cancer and to educate our citizens about prevention, detection 
and treatment.
  I am particularly thankful for their work because I know the 
devastating effects of breast cancer on individuals and families in my 
district. Those who lack awareness of the disease are less likely to 
follow basic prevention and detection protocols. Too many women die of 
this disease when early detection and treatment might have saved their 
lives.
  Throughout the year the American Cancer Society works hard to make a 
difference in the lives of Wisconsin residents, promoting cancer 
awareness and prevention. It is a pleasure to take this opportunity to 
recognize their contributions to the communities in the Fourth 
Congressional District, and to say thank you. I wish them good weather 
for a successful event and another year of commendable work.

                          ____________________
