| October 9, 2012

ROSWELL, Ga. — Spencer Pest Services with its Pest Control for a Cure Program is just one of 10 local small businesses who joined forces to raise money to cure cancer. The group, Stick it 2 Cancer, was formed by In-Depth Wraps owners, Torri and John Westmoreland after John was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. He kicked cancer to the curb and the couple is passionate about helping others do the same.

In-Depth Wraps, Big Frog of Cumming Custom T-Shirts & More, Bodyplex Fitness, Brandywine Printing, CPR Momma, jTech Networks, Lenny’s Sub Shop, Rooter Plus, Somedia Solutions, and Spencer Pest Services all work together to host exciting fundraisers with one goal in mind: Create a cancer-free world. Everything the team does ultimately benefits the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. They put together unique events such as poker tournaments, car shows and more. The teams were able to get additional support from other local restaurants and businesses for each of their events. Together, they are increasing community awareness and support for cancer.

This is Stick it 2 Cancer’s 3rd year as a team. Last year their goal was to raise $60,000 and ended up raising over $75,000. This year they created a lofty goal of funding two researchers for a year at a cost of $1,000 per week for a total of $104,000. All monies raised by team Stick it 2 Cancer go directly to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).

During the Light the Night Walk for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society on September 22, the Stick it 2 Cancer team presented a check to the LLS for $106,000, bringing their 3 year total to over $200,000! The team is still receiving monies and will end up exceeding $110,000 this year. This just goes to show that small businesses can make a huge difference.

Stick it 2 Cancer has not yet released their new goal for 2013, but it will certainly be a lofty one.
