About the American Cancer Society
Our mission is to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight to a work without cancer.
Every action we take moves us one step closer to a world free from the pain and suffering of cancer. We do this by drawing on the values of humanity to encourage prevention, raise awareness, foster innovation, inspire generosity, deepen understanding, and provide care.
We encourage prevention by advocating for lifesaving changes, promoting early screening, and empowering others to make healthy lifestyle choices.
We are relentless in our efforts to raise awareness by honoring the people we've lost, supporting those in treatment, and celebrating the lives we've saved.
We foster innovation by conducting groundbreaking research and funding pioneering scientists.
We inspire generosity by motivating communities to donate and mobilizing them to act.
We deepen understanding for those affected by cancer by delivering crucial health information and vital patient service
We provide care through a network of Hope Lodges providing housing during treatments and patient navigators steering patients through treatment
