Mission Statement

The American Cancer Society 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.

Description

Your American Cancer Society is in your corner around the clock to help you stay well and get well, to find cures, and to fight back.

We help you take steps to prevent cancer or find it at its earliest, most treatable stage. We’re in your corner around the clock to help you through every step of a cancer experience. We fund and conduct research that helps us better understand, prevent, and cure cancer. We work with lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and rally communities worldwide to join the fight. We're working every day to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. But we can't continue our progress while millions of underinsured and uninsured Americans don't have access to lifesaving cancer care.
