Plans are underway for the 40th annual American Cancer Society Telethon. Started in 1978, the event is a major fundraiser for the Greater Hazleton Unit of the ACS and also serves as a cancer prevention education tool. The telethon will be held Feb. 24 at WYLN-TV 35 studios, 1057 E. 10th St. (10th and Thompson streets), Hazleton. The telethon will run from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and is dedicated to the memory of founders Henry and Leona Kreisl and Joseph and Irene Gans. Cancer touches everyone in some way and the ACS is here to help. Events such as the telethon raise money to fight cancer locally and help to educate the public about things they can do to prevent and treat cancer. Each day in Pennsylvania, the ACS helps 77 patients and caregivers find information, provides rides to 104 patients, gives wigs to three patients and provides $86,000 in research funds. This year’s theme is “40 Years of Giving So Many Can Go On Living.”
