What will it take to beat cancer?


The American Cancer Society is leading the fight by promoting healthy lifestyles to help you prevent cancer. We research cancer and its causes to find more answers and better treatments. We fight for lifesaving policy changes. We provide everything from emotional support to the latest cancer information for those who have been touched by cancer. And we do it all 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

We’re attacking cancer by backing visionaries, investing in longshots, and building on hard-won knowledge to find powerful new weapons.


We’re attacking cancer by making it less scary and confusing, less stressful, less lonely.


We’re attacking cancer by showing up every day, driving people, boosting people, picking them up when they’re down.

We’re attacking cancer by providing a place to stay, by building a community. A home for healing.


We’re attacking cancer with stubborn hope, relentless energy, and a promise that everywhere cancer rears its despicable head, we will be there to blunt its effects and lessen its power.


From the cellular level to the street level, with brilliant new thinking and in the darkest hours, the American Cancer Society is attacking cancer from every angle
