Who We Are

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

Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, the ACS has regional and local offices throughout the country that support 11 geographical Divisions and ensure we have a presence in every community.

My step dad died from cancer and I love how this organization helps people going through similar things. I would like to participate in helping any way I can!
