Mission Statement

The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service.

Description

We fight for everyone. Cancer doesn't discriminate; neither do we. We fight for every birthday threatened by every cancer , in every community. We fight so one day no one has to ever face cancer.

We combine wisdom with passion. Our unwavering commitment is based on a century of experience. We turn what we know about cancer - like how to prevent it - into what we do. And we fight on every front, because lessons from one battlefield can mean victory on another.

We get results. The list of accomplishments we've achieved with our more than 3 million supporters is long, but the bottom line is that more than 11 million cancer survivors - and countless Americans who have avoided cancer - are celebrating birthdays this year because of the progress we've made.

Together with our millions of supporters, the American Cancer Society saves lives and creates more birthdays by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back.

Would you recommend American Cancer Society?

by Kimberly J. from Virginia Beach, VA (2009-10-07 05:55:43.0)
This was a very fun and upbeat event that pulled a lot of younger volunteers from the area. It was well organized, considering the size of the operation, and only promises to expand over the coming years. Although a little chaotic, it was really fun to see all of the groups gear up for the walk, meet friends and family, and cheer each other on. I would recommend this volunteer opportunity to any who would like to participate in a large-scale fundraising event.
