Mission Statement

The American Cancer Society is a 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

The American Cancer Society saves lives by helping people stay well and get well by finding cures, and by fighting back.

We help people take steps to prevent cancer or detect it at it's earliest, most treatable stage.

The American Cancer Society is here every minute of every day and night to offer free information, programs, services, and community referrals to patients, survivors and caregivers through every step of a cancer experience - so they can focus on getting well. You can call us at 1-800-227-2345 or via the web at www.cancer.org 24 hours a day - 7 days a week.

The American Cancer Society funds ground breaking research that helps us understand cancer's causes, determine how best to prevent it and discover new ways to cure it.

We work with lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and rally communities worldwide to join the fight.
