OUR MISSION IS SIMPLE.
SAVE LIVES. CELEBRATE LIVES. AND LEAD THE FIGHT FOR A WORLD WITHOUT CANCER.
Today, almost 1,700 people in the US will die of cancer. That adds up to more than 600,000 Americans dying of cancer this year alone. That's why, with our 1.5 million volunteers, we are taking action.
• WE ARE ON A MISSION •
WE ARE ATTACKING CANCER FROM EVERY ANGLE.
At the American Cancer Society, we're on a mission to free the world from cancer. Until we do, we'll be funding and conducting research, sharing expert information, supporting patients, and spreading the world about prevention.
BEATING CANCER TAKES MORE THAN JUST MEDICINE.
That's why the American Cancer Society does more than breakthrough research. We also offer free rides to treatment, a live 24/7 helpline, and free lodging near hospitals for people dealing with every type of cancer.
