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

The American Cancer Society uses fund raising events including the Relay For Life to support our cancer fighting mission. We support this mission by providing cancer patients with programs that make their journey more managable, by lobbying our government to take action on cancer related issues, by being the second-leading financial backer of cancer research right behind the United States Government, and by educating the public about prevention and early detection.
