This Touching Ad for Cancer Shows that the Disease Can Strike at Any Age

 - Nov 19, 2015

This touching ad for the American Cancer Society shows viewers that cancer can strike at any age.

The ad begins with a young male in a dapper suit nervously sitting in his car. He proceeds to get out and knock on the door of the house that belongs to his prom date. When the door opens, a beautiful girl is standing there, with a bald head. The couple exchange smiles and breath a sigh of relief to solidify their joint nervousness about prom.

The touching ad honors youth, courage and human emotion. The ad ends with the phrase "Courage: Just one reason why more people are surviving cancer than dying from it." The ad uses the act of courage and applies it to cancer and to dating -- while both situations are different, they both involve the human ability to be brave.
