Whether you’re joining the fight to end cancer for a parent, a spouse, a friend or a child, everyone has their personal reasons for taking action. What we all share is the belief that we can end this terrible disease if we work together.
We didn’t get to where we are on our own. We got here because of millions of people who know that we can finish this fight. Help Now
Because of the donations, involvement, and healthy choices of people like you, we have helped contribute to a 20 percent drop in cancer death rates since the early 1990s.
That means that together we've helped save nearly 1.2 million lives from cancer during that time. But we're not done yet. Help Now
Over the last 100 years, we've learned that cancer hates noise. It hates people like us taking action.
And while the disease still claims 1,500 lives a day in the United States, you can change that by getting loud – by signing up for a local fundraising event, speaking out for access to quality health care for all, helping fund the next research breakthrough, or spreading the word to friends and family.
Silence won't finish the fight, only action will. Help Now
One hundred years ago, the American Cancer Society began the fight of a lifetime. Since then, we've been helping transform cancer from deadly to treatable to preventable. We've played a role in nearly every cancer research breakthrough in recent history, helping create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.
Let's make this cancer’s last century. Help Now
We have a presence in more than 5,100 communities, and we have helped millions of cancer patients and their families stay strong throughout their journey – whether it's a free ride, a place to stay when treatment is far from home, support from our 24-7 phone line, or guidance on tough medical decisions from a trained volunteer who has been there.
We have a century of experience being a responsible, responsive, and innovative organization, and we raise nearly all of our money through private individual donations. Help Now
Yes, I pledge to help the American Cancer Society finish the fight against cancer by taking a Moment AGAINST Silence. Cancer thrives on silence. That’s why I’m making noise by taking action now.
