The American Cancer Society has launched a global movement where people around the world have passionately committed to making a world with less cancer and more birthdays a reality.
The ACS movement honors those that have been affected by cancer, and reminds us all how special one more candle, one more cake, and one more celebration with the people we love truly is.
The movement has also garnered the attention of quite a few celebrities. This month, Award-winning actor Taye Diggs is the Celebrity of the Month and is serious in his commitment to stomp out cancer.
“The movement for more birthdays is about everyday people coming together to make a meaningful difference” said Diggs, “I am committed to helping the American Cancer Society share the message of how special one more candle, one more cake, and one more celebration with the people we love is!”
Also committed to the movement for More Birthdays is Academy Award, Golden Globe, Tony Award and Emmy Award winning actress Ellen Burstyn.
“I am proud to be committed to helping the American Cancer Society save lives and create a world with more birthdays,” said Burstyn.
Even the cast and creators of ABC’s hit series “Private Practice” joined forces with the American Cancer Society to ‘Blow Out Cancer.’
And of course, what’s a birthday movement without the support of Duff Goldman —"Ace of Cakes"?
“I’m honored to be a part of this movement,” explained Goldman, “We’ve all been touched by cancer, and for me, I’m willing to do whatever I can to help fight this horrible disease. So, when I heard about the More Birthdays campaign, I was excited. Together, we’re working to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.”
