Partnering For Life

A Cancer Awareness Initiative for the Black Community

Information. Education. Inspiration.

The American Cancer Society’s Partnering For Life initiative works to spread awareness about cancer risk, prevention, and early detection in the Black community. We welcome you to use the resources found here for your own personal health journey, with your family and loved ones, or to lead conversations within your community.

Watch Our Partnering For Life Concert

On December 4, 2021 we launched our national Partnering For Life initiative with an evening of music and hope. Wendy Raquel Robinson, actress and American Cancer Society Ambassador, hosted dynamic performances by Jonathan Nelson, Maurette Brown Clark, Patrick Lundy and the Ministers of Music, and Dottie Peoples. The virtual show also included inspirational messages delivered by special guests from across the nation.
