Mission Statement

ACS CAN volunteers in Virginia are making fighting cancer a top priority for our elected officials. By sharing their personal cancer stories, our volunteers help educate legislators on public policy issues that work towards preventing and treating cancer, and funding cancer research.


If we are to succeed in our mission to end suffering and death from cancer, it won't just happen in the doctor's office or research lab. This movement must start at the statehouse and in Congress. And, it will be led by volunteers - regular people whose lives have been impacted by cancer - rallying together to demand change from their elected officials.

ACS CAN is empowering volunteers to do just that - influence change and impact the future of cancer. From gaining dramatic increases in funding for cancer research to ensuring all Americans have access to cancer care, our work is saving lives and leading to new innovative breakthroughs in how to fight this disease.
