Chairwoman in Florida Resigns Following Failure to Obtain Documentation on Money Trail
I wish every person who participates in money raising efforts for the American Cancer Society (ACS), including the walkathons, could read this e-mail from Jane Waters. She discovered, from the inside, the reality of the fraudulence and insincerity that is at the core of the ACS. The American Cancer Society was funded and founded by the Rockefellers as a front for public relations and a conduit for raised money for the promotion of orthodox cancer treatment (chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery) and the debunking of alternative cancer treatments. For as long as I can remember, the American Cancer Society has been pitching the idea that they are actively involved in the funding of cancer research. They are not. Their job is to mislead the public away from alternative medicine ("dangerous", "unproven", quackery", etc.) and reinforce the notion that orthodox cancer treatment is the ONLY legitimate and acceptable modality for cancer. If you involved with any form of fund raising activity for the American Cancer Society, you are assisting the pharmaceutical industry in perpetuating the despicable business of 'cancer management'. Cancer is CURABLE. Any type of cancer is curable, but you have the smallest chance of curing cancer (a real cure, not merely surviving for 5 years) using orthodox methods (as shown in the 1993 cancer report of German hospital statistician Ulrich Abel) and the greatest chance of a permanent cure employing Nature based therapies.

Dear Mr. Adacht:
I am writing to you today to request your assistance in locating information on the American Cancer Society (beyond their famed website).
I am trying to figure out where the money that is raised by this organization is spent, used, or lobbied away. I personally have given thousands of dollars to this organization and I recently resigned as the Chairwoman of the East Polk County, American Cancer Society because I was told that there were no reports that could answer our board’s and one of our largest sponsor’s (our city) questions. The questions were basic: where does the money go that is raised through the fundraising efforts of the local Relay For Life events and where are the services rendered that are advertised?
I resigned after extensive questioning by local, regional, and state representatives of the ACS because I was never given the requested information regarding budget, services, and patients served in our community; the community that was represented by the board requesting the information. When we were finally given numbers (of any kind) these numbers represented patients served and they were considerably different than the numbers given to us (much later) by their regional office. So the question was raised: who knew the “actual” number and was there any way to find out how the money raised in our community was being spent?
Due to my position in our community, my resignation was very public and became an issue for several weeks. If you have any direction or resource that can help with these issues it would be most greatly appreciated.
