Renewal by Andersen and The American Cancer Society


I’m David Meade and I’m general manager
of RBA Wyoming, Rapid City, and Montana. In November of 2018,
I found out I had tonsil cancer. I went through chemo and radiation 39 radiation
treatments, 8 chemo treatments. When my treatment was done in May they
declared us in remission. Well then unfortunately this year in
August, I found out the cancer came back instead of on the right side it was on
the left side and this time it was a little different because I also was told
throat cancer doesn’t come back. Well guess what? It does.
We know that after someone hears those words you have cancer one of the most important things
they need is answers to their questions. My name is David Benson I’m the
executive vice president of your American Cancer Society’s North Region.
We’re the largest private funder of cancer research in the United States and
we’ve been on the forefront of cancer prevention and early detection. Early
detection it’s a big thing, my cancer doc in Casper said why did you come in
so early I go I just knew there was something wrong.
We also help patients with access to care and so we work with those patients
to make sure that they have transportation and in some cases even
lodging. At the end of the day we want to make sure that we’re there providing
support to cancer patients and cancer survivors when they need it most. My wife has been a rock through this whole thing and I guess you really don’t
know how much everybody cares for you to go through something like this and they
show their love and support. Supporting the American Cancer Society is really
about supporting progress we’ve had countless volunteers countless staff
working hand in hand to make sure that we can see progress on the fight against
cancer and the support of Renewal by Andersen is a big part of helping us do
that and I can’t thank you all enough for
helping be a part of this team. I’m gonna be back here and I’m gonna
tell everybody how great I’m doing that’s my hope
