Mission Statement

The mission of the American Cancer Society is to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer. As we all know, when cancer strikes, it hits from all sides. That’s why we’re committed to attacking cancer from every angle.

Description

The American Cancer Society is a nationwide, community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem. 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. Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature event, taking place across the nation and in
countries around the globe. In fact, it’s the largest annual not-for-profit fundraising event in the world! It
brings together 3.5 million people to:
Celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer. It is the strength of cancer survivors that inspires
us to continue the fight.
Remember loved ones lost to the disease. At Relay, those who have walked alongside those battling
cancer can grieve and find healing.
Fight back against a disease that takes too much. We make a commitment to save a life by taking up
the fight
