Your Dollars at Work
With your help, we're saving lives!
Every dollar you provide to the American Cancer Society goes toward eliminating cancer as a major health concern. Dollars raised across the country through Daffodil Days help the American Cancer Society make significant progress in saving lives every day.
We’re helping people stay well.
In the fight against cancer, prevention is our greatest ally. The American Cancer Society fights cancer by connecting people with lifesaving knowledge. We strive to translate what we know about prevention into what we do about prevention. We encourage people to help us avoid more than half of all cancer deaths by doing what we know works – eating well, staying active, avoiding tobacco, and having regular cancer screenings. We are working to make cancer a thing of the past – to save lives – by helping people stay well.

We’re helping people get well.
When facing a cancer diagnosis, even the simple things can seem overwhelming. Whether it is through a ride to treatment, a shoulder to lean on, or help navigating treatment decisions and everyday concerns, the American Cancer Society connects people facing cancer and their families to the resources they need to cope with the disease. Our millions of volunteers and staff across the country are always here to help people get well from cancer – whether it is the middle of the day or the middle of the night.

We’re finding cures.
As the nation’s largest source of private, nonprofit cancer research funds, the American Cancer Society has distributed more than $3 billion to researchers since 1946 and counts 42 Nobel Prize-winning scientists in its history. We are unswervingly committed to improving quality of life and finding new and better treatments – to saving lives – through cancer research.
