ACCESS in the Community
Cancer affects all us and ACCESSbank is taking a stand against it. We sponsored the WE CAN Cure-a-Thon and matched donations up to $5,000. 100% of the proceeds will go to cancer research and patient assistance at the new Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center which opens in the spring of 2017. Here's a photo of us with our WE CAN bracelets supporting those who have been affected by cancer. #wecan
