Morris is a resident of Moreland Hills, Ohio and has served on the American Cancer Society Board in Cleveland for 5 years.
“I am very excited about this opportunity to help the American Cancer Society achieve its mission of `eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives and diminishing suffering from cancer through research, education, advocacy and service,'” Morris said.
Local boards are a vital part of the American Cancer Society, providing the local leadership that makes the Society’s success possible.

About The American Cancer Society:
The American Cancer Society saves lives by helping people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery; and by fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight. As the nation’s largest non-governmental investor in cancer research, contributing about $3.5 billion, the Society turns what we know about cancer into what we do. As a result, more than 11 million people in America who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will be celebrating birthdays this year.
