OUR MISSION IS SIMPLE
Save lives, celebrate lives, and lead
the fight for a world without cancer.
The American Cancer Society was created more than 100 years for one purpose – to liberate the world from the threat of cancer. Thanks in part to our efforts, there has been a 25 percent decline in the cancer death rate over the past 26 years. That’s 2.1 million deaths prevented.
The American Cancer Society is attacking cancer from every angle and leading the fight for a world without cancer. We’re attacking cancer in dozens of ways, each of them critical to achieving a world without cancer – from deploying activists to developing breakthrough therapies, from building supportive communities to providing direction and answers.
Help ALL of us attack cancer from every angle. Beating cancer takes more than medicine, which is why the American Cancer Society does much more than breakthrough research. We also provide free rides to chemo, a 24/7 cancer helpline, and free lodging near hospitals. That’s how we’re attacking cancer from every angle.
Your investment in the American Cancer Society means we are able to provide support to everyone impacted by cancer, in every community, from research to education, to prevention to diagnosis, and treatment to recovery.
