Mission Statement

Founded in 1913, the American Cancer Society is the nation’s largest community based voluntary health organization and has played a role in virtually every groundbreaking cancer advance realized. With volunteers as its backbone, the Society tackles all cancers on all fronts to eliminate cancer as a major health problem.

Description

The San Francisco Soiree will raise money to support The American Cancer Society’s mission to save lives and create more birthdays by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures and by fighting back. The American Cancer Society estimates that approximately 1.5 million new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed in the United States this year. More than 560,000 Americans will lose their battle. That’s nearly 1,500 people a day. In the United States, one of every four deaths is from cancer. The American Cancer Society is committed to changing these devastating odds.
