The American Cancer Society is the nationwide community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by saving lives and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service.
The American Cancer Society is here when you need us. Nine decades of service have taught us that cancer affects everyone, whether through a personal diagnosis or that of a friend, family member, co-worker, or neighbor. We fight cancer on multiple fronts, protecting the public through research, education, advocacy and service, offering support to cancer patients and their families.
Assistance is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 1.800.ACS.2345, where cancer information specialists provide information in English, Spanish, and other languages. Our website, www.cancer.org, is an invaluable information resource at your fingertips.
