For Funeral Directors

Sunflower

As a funeral director, you see firsthand how cancer affects millions of people each year – those diagnosed and battling the disease, those who have lost their fight with cancer, and the friends and family members who are left to cope with their loss.

The American Cancer Society and funeral directors work together to help families cope with the loss of a loved one to cancer. And we continue to share the goal of increasing public awareness about cancer prevention and early detection so more people can stay well.

In support of our goal, the American Cancer Society provides funeral directors free information and resources to share with friends and families who have lost a loved one to cancer.

MEMORIAL GIFT ENVELOPES

Funeral directors can request Memorial Gift Envelopes by calling 1-800-227-2345. These envelopes are designed for those wishing to make a memorial contribution, and can be displayed during services and made available to families and friends.
