The American Cancer Society is a nationwide, community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by helping people stay well, helping people get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back.
The American Cancer Society coordinates multi-level educational, advocacy, and media campaigns to help adults and children lower their risks for contracting cancer. For cancer patients, families, and survivors, the Society offers support groups, classes/workshops, and other patient support services to meet individual needs. In addition to providing a range of informational materials to the public and health professionals, the Society also issues guidelines for specific forms of cancer pertaining to diagnosis, care options, symptom management, pain control, and related aspects.
