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. The American Cancer Society's international mission concentrates on capacity building in developing cancer societies and on collaboration with other cancer-related organizations throughout the world in carrying out shared strategic directions.

Description

The Society relies on the strength of approximately 2.5 million dedicated volunteers. Supported by professional staff, Society volunteers drive every part of our mission. They raise funds to support crucial research, provide cancer patients rides to and from treatments, and give one-on-one support to those facing a cancer diagnosis - and that’s just the beginning.

Would you recommend American Cancer Society?

I had a great time working with the Long Beach Cancer League at their annual gala. They assigned me a perfect position, fed all the volunteers and I met some wonderful people. Look forward to working with them again.
