Industry-leading multimedia platform joins forces with well-renowned non-profit organization to help save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.
CRANBURY, N.J., July 13, 2021 -- CURE® Media Group is pleased to announce the addition of its newest partner, the American Cancer Society®, to its prestigious Strategic Alliance Partnership (SAP) program.
"The American Cancer Society® has worked tirelessly towards becoming a global leader in cancer research for many years, contributing towards the advancement and innovation of cancer treatment," said Mike Hennessy Jr., president and CEO of MJH Life Sciences™, parent company to CURE Media Group. "We are so honored to be teaming up with such an established and well-respected nationwide, community-based voluntary health organization that we can work with to reach our common goal – advancing and improving cancer patient care."
For more than 100 years, the American Cancer Society has helped lead an evolution in the way the world prevents, detects, treats, and thinks about cancer. As the nation's leading cancer-fighting nonprofit, the Society funds and conducts research, shares expert information, supports people with cancer, spreads the word about prevention, and through their advocacy affiliate, ACS CAN, advocates for public policy change. The Society has contributed to work that has resulted in a 31 percent drop in the cancer death rate in the United States, which equates to 3.2 million fewer cancer deaths overall.
Some of the major contributions the Society has made to cancer research include establishing the link between cancer and smoking, demonstrating the effectiveness of the Pap test, the development of cancer-fighting drugs, the dramatic increase in the cure rate for childhood leukemia, effectiveness of mammography, and much more.
In addition to the partnership, Mike Hennessy Jr. will also become a member of the American Cancer Society Tri-State CEOs Against Cancer initiative and support the "Research Funding Crisis." This program leverages the power of global thought leaders to inspire a movement within organizations that directly improves the lives of employees and communities, while simultaneously contributing to the efforts of the fight against cancer.

"And we are grateful to CEO Michael Hennessy Jr. for his leadership in supporting CEOs Against Cancer and our cancer research program."
The SAP program brings together advocacy organizations, medical associations and institutions, and community cancer centers, and fosters collaboration and an open exchange of information among trusted peers for the benefit of patients and their families. As part of this joint effort, CURE Media Group will work with the American Cancer Society to share information and highlight the different cancer communities they support.
