Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.
We help people stay well and take steps to prevent cancer or detect it at its earliest, most treatable stage. Our efforts are helping people right now to stop smoking, get the right screening tests, and live healthy lifestyles.
The American Cancer Society is here every minute of every day and night to help people get well. We offer free information, programs, services, and referrals to local resources. This helps patients, survivors, and caregivers through each step of a cancer experience – so they can focus on what's important - getting well.
We find cures and fund groundbreaking research that helps us understand cancer’s causes, determine how best to prevent it, and discover new ways to cure it. Forty-four of our researchers have gone on to win Nobel Prizes, an amazing accomplishment.
And we fight back. We work with elected officials to pass laws to defeat cancer and rally communities to join the cause. Mammograms for uninsured women, health care reform and smoke free workplaces all happened, in part, because of the dedication of our volunteers.
