Medical editor Ross highlights the history of the American Cancer Society from its birth in 1913 as the American Society for the Control of Cancer to the present. He relates the role of the society in linking smoking to lung cancer; the utilization of the Pap smear despite early skepticism from physicians; and the cancer research program. He stresses the major role of volunteers in programs like Reach for Recovery for breast cancer patients, and the independence of the society from other charities and government agencies. This official history will be of interest to cancer patients, their families, society volunteers, and benefactors. Recommended for larger health collections.
