What does it take to outsmart cancer? Research.
The American Cancer Society (ACS) has helped make possible almost every major cancer breakthrough since 1946. Since then, we've invested more than $5 billion in cancer research, making us the largest nonprofit funder of cancer research in the United States, outside of the federal government.
We remain committed to finding more – and better – ways to improve the quality of life for cancer patients.
We need to invest more in research to uncover the causes of the rising trends and to discover new treatment for advanced-stage colorectal cancer to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with this disease in this younger population, who are raising families and supporting other family members."
Whether we're conducting research or funding it, our goal remains the same: to free the world from the pain and suffering of cancer.
Our work covers the full realm of cancer research.
Anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer, regardless of whether they are actively receiving treatment.
