Donations are now being sought for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life of Porterville to be held October 5 at Summit Charter Collegiate Academy.

The goal this year is to raise $108,000 to support American Cancer Society patient programs and research. The American Cancer Society’s tax ID number is 13-1788491.

A $15 donation can help provide a patient a ride to treatment or a follow-up appointment through the Road to Recovery patient program.

A $50 donated can help provide a wig to a patient in treatment through many wig bank locations, including one in downtown Visalia.

A $100 donation can help fund a research grant to find a lifesaving treatment for a cancer survivor battling the disease.

For more information, call Relay For Life of Porterville community manager Kim Wallace, (559) 900-1126.
