THE STORY:

For more than 100 years, the American Cancer Society (ACS) has worked relentlessly to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Together with millions of supporters worldwide, they help people stay well, help people get well, find cures, and fight back against cancer.  

 

They are the largest nongovernmental funder of cancer research in the United States, having spent more than $4 billion since 1946 to find cures. They fund both external research projects through grants and scholarships as well as conduct their own research into cancer epidemiology, surveillance, and health policy. They fund beginning researchers with cutting-edge ideas early in their careers -- 47 of whom have gone on to win the Nobel Prize, the highest accolade in scientific achievement.

They've had a hand in nearly every major cancer breakthrough of the last century, including confirming the link between cigarette smoking and lung cancer, establishing the link between obesity and multiple cancers, developing drugs to treat leukemia and advanced breast cancer, and showing that mammography is the most effective way to detect breast cancer. 

In addition to the research they do, they also help people live a healthy lifestyle and detect cancer early, when it is most treatable.

Nearly half of all cancer deaths could be avoided if we did what we know works ─ live healthier lifestyles, quit smoking, and get our recommended cancer screenings. The American Cancer Society helps you take steps every day to stay well. They have the resources, information, and support you need to stay motivated to eat right and get active, quit smoking, or help a loved one kick the habit, and understand what cancer screenings you need.

 

I hope you'll join me in remembering the many people we all know that have lost their lives far too early to cancer, honoring those that have battled the disease and survived, and celebrating those that will enjoy more birthdays as a result of the work done by the American Cancer Society.
