American Cancer Society

The American Cancer Society is on a mission to free the world from cancer. For more than 100 years, the organization has helped lead an evolution in the way the world prevents, detects, treats, and thinks about cancer. As the nation’s preeminent cancer-fighting organization, the American Cancer Society funds and conducts research, shares expert information, supports people with cancer, spreads the word about prevention, and through its advocacy affiliate, the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), advocates for public policy change.

The American Cancer Society is committed to ensuring that ALL people have a fair and just opportunity to prevent, find, treat, and survive cancer – regardless of income, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability status, or where they live. Thanks in large part to the organization’s decades of work, a cancer diagnosis does not come without hope, and the cancer journey is not one that is traveled alone.
