Comprehensive Cancer Centers (Comprehensive), the official cancer center partner of the Las Vegas Aces, announced the final total raised through the Every Point Counts initiative, benefiting the American Cancer Society and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.
With 351 free throws made through the Aces’ regular season and first-ever playoff run, the final total amounted to $20,040, including funds from Comprehensive patient Anne Fried and her wife Barbara, who donated $6,000 toward the total amount raised. The campaign promoted breast cancer awareness throughout the season, including a Breast Health Awareness Night on Aug. 20.
The game featured pink rally towels for all attendees, on-court recognition for breast cancer patients and their families, and physicians from Comprehensive cheering them on in the crowd. Funds raised through Every Point Counts will allow the American Cancer Society to provide vital services to cancer patients, including transportation to appointments and emotional support groups.
