The bottom line is that with your partnership, the American Cancer Society can save even more lives every day. There are an infinite number of ways to get involved. Fundraising, matching gifts, direct donation, event sponsorship and in-kind gifts.

In the US, approximately 1 in 3 people will develop cancer during their lifetime. We work to ease the cancer burden by funding breakthrough research, providing evidence-based guidelines and trusted information, and expanding patient support services. Even with all we're doing, we can't attack cancer from every angle without help. Every donation, every corporate partnership, every in-kind gift helps in the fight.

We’re that much stronger when we fight cancer together.
