While CTDI is disappointed to hear that The Discovery Ball has been cancelled, we definitely understand the need to move it to a virtual event. Especially in these very challenging times and the unified efforts we need globally to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus. CTDI is happy to see our sponsorship dollars go to a great cause that we both support – fighting Cancer. CTDI is thrilled we can still support this great cause, even within a virtual event, best of luck!
Although we are currently facing an unprecedented crisis riddled with fear and doubt, let's be reminded that 'a difficult time can be more readily endured if we retain the conviction that our existence holds a purpose – a cause to pursue, a person to love, a goal to achieve.' - John Maxwell. There is no doubt, however, that the American Cancer Society faces similar challenges every day in their efforts to free the world from cancer. It is with tremendous gratitude, respect and admiration that I personally endorse the life-saving efforts of the ACS. Sending positive energy for health and peace to all!
