Save Lives. Fulfill Yours.

Together with our millions of volunteers, the American Cancer Society saves lives and creates more birthdays by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back.

Whether it’s giving a cancer patient a ride to chemotherapy, putting together a team for Relay For Life®, or sending an e-mail to family and friends about our cancer screening guidelines, there are multiple ways you can get involved in the Society’s lifesaving mission.
