WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO BEAT CANCER?
ALL OF US.
The American Cancer Society is on a mission to free the world from cancer. For more than 100 years, we have helped lead an evolution in the way the world prevents, detects, treats, and thinks about cancer. We fund and conduct research, share expert information, support people with cancer, spread the word about prevention, and through our advocacy affiliate, ACS CAN, advocate for public policy change. We are committed to ensuring all people have a fair and just opportunity to prevent, find, treat, and survive cancer - regardless of income, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability status, or where they live. Thanks in large part to our decades of work, a cancer diagnosis does not come without hope, and the cancer journey is not one that is traveled alone.
WE'RE ATTACKING CANCER BY...
Providing a place to stay, by building a community. A home for healing.
Showing up every day, driving people, boosting people, picking them up when they're down.
Making it less scary and confusing, less stressful, less lonely.
Backing visionaries, investing in longshots, building on hard-won knowledge to find powerful new weapons
WE'RE ATTACKING CANCER WITH...
Stubborn hope, relentless energy, and a promise that everywhere cancer rears its despicable head, we will be there to blunt its effects and lessen its power.
