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

For 100 years, the American Cancer Society (ACS) has worked relentlessly to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. The ACS knows that every cancer patient is a fighter - and we’re in the ring with them through every round. Whether it’s discovering medications that help people live longer and better than ever, or pioneering and promoting the most promising cancer prevention or screening tests, the ACS has been involved in nearly every major cancer breakthrough in the past century. As the world’s largest private funder of cancer research, we support the best ideas of the brightest cancer researchers, who with each discovery are getting us closer to a world with more birthdays.
