-What We Do-

The American Cancer Society

While most people know us for our research, we do so much more. We attack cancer from every angle. We promote healthy lifestyles to help you prevent cancer. We research cancer and its causes to find more answers and better treatments. We fight for lifesaving policy changes. We provide everything from emotional support to the latest cancer information for those who have been touched by cancer.
And we do it all 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Encouraging Prevention

We help you take steps to prevent cancer or find it at its earliest, most treatable stage.

Providing Support

We’re here for you every second of every day, to help you through every step of your cancer experience.

Fostering Innovation

We fund and conduct lifesaving research that helps us better understand, prevent, and find cures for cancer.

Fighting for What’s Right

We work with lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and rally communities worldwide to join our mission.

Access to Care

We're working every day to free the world from the pain and suffering from cancer, but we can't continue our progress while millions of under insured and uninsured Americans don't have access to lifesaving cancer care.

Supporting Multicultural Communities

The American Cancer Society supports multicultural communities in a variety of ways to help reduce the risk of cancer.
