Community Programs & Services
The American Cancer Society offers programs and services to help the more than 1.4 million cancer patients diagnosed each year in this country, and the 11 million cancer survivors – as well as their family and friends. We provide information, day-to-day help, and emotional support. And best of all, our help is free.
Whether it is providing information to help make decisions or free services like transportation to and from cancer treatment or a free place to stay while receiving treatment far from home, the American Cancer Society is available around the clock to help people focus on getting well.
The American Cancer Society is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, by phone at 1-800-227-2345 or online at cancer.org. When you call us, you will talk with a trained Cancer Information Specialist. We can also help those who speak a language other than English or Spanish find the help they need.
Rides to treatment: Sometimes getting to cancer treatment is a challenge. If you need a ride to treatment, we may be able to help.
Breast cancer support: Women with breast cancer can talk with a trained Reach To Recovery® volunteer who is a breast cancer survivor.
