The American Cancer Society (ACS) 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."
The American Cancer Society is dedicated to helping people
- Stay Well: through prevention & detection
- Get Well: provide programs and services that enhance the quality of life for those diagnosed with cancer.
- Find Cures: largest funder of cancer research outside of the federal government. 44 our of research grant recipients have gone on to win the Nobel Prize
- Fight Back: volunteers assisting cancer survivors, caregivers and family members in a variety of way. One major way we fight back is to make our voice heard in Washington DC and in Harrisburg as legistlation arises which would have either a positive or negative impact on prevention & detection or health care.
