While most people know us for our research, we do so much more. We work to end cancer as we know it, for everyone. We advocate for lifesaving policy changes. We promote healthy lifestyles to help you prevent cancer. We research cancer and its causes to find more answers and better treatments. We provide information, answers, and support to people in every community who have been touched by cancer. And we do it all 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We help you take steps to prevent cancer or find it at its earliest, most treatable stage.
We’re here for you every second of every day, to help you through every step of your cancer experience.
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 work with lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and rally communities worldwide to join our mission.
We're working every day to free the world from the pain and suffering from cancer, but we can't continue our progress while millions of underinsured and uninsured Americans don't have access to lifesaving cancer care.
We fund and conduct lifesaving research that helps us better understand, prevent, and find cures for cancer.
The American Cancer Society supports multicultural communities in a variety of ways to help reduce the risk of cancer.
