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's signature fundraiser is The Relay For Life. This is a 24 hour community based event that raises funds and awareness for cancer. We celebrate cancer survivors and their caregivers, remember those who have lost their battle to cancer, and we commit to fighting back against a disease that has already taken too much from too many.

The American Cancer Society provides free services to cancer patients and their caregivers. We provide transportation to cancer patients to and from their cancer treatments, we offer support groups for cancer patients and caregivers, we offer mileage reimbursement to cancer patients to and from their cancer treatments, and we provide funds and hope at the annual Relay For Life events that take place around the world. We fund researchers to find a cure for cancer.
