ACS CAN's determined advocates put a face on cancer and work to ensure that the eleven million survivors of this dreaded disease are seen and heard by lawmakers and elected officials. ACS CAN empowers you to take action; ACS CAN unites our voices into one unstoppable force; ACS CAN will make cancer a top national priority that lawmakers cannot ignore.

Description

ACS CAN is the nation's leading cancer advocacy organization that is working every day to make cancer issues a national priority.

Many of the most important decisions about cancer are made outside of your doctor's office. Instead, they are made by your state legislature, in Congress and in the White House. ACS CAN empowers regular people to be part of the growing national movement that is fighting back against cancer.

ACS CAN, the nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy affiliate of the American Cancer Society, is holding lawmakers accountable for their words and their actions. We demand that our leaders not only talk about fighting cancer but take real steps toward decreasing the number of people suffering and dying from cancer.
