About your American Cancer Society

As the largest voluntary health organization in the United States, the American Cancer Society is passionately committed to saving lives from cancer. We’re working to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays - a world where cancer never steals another year from anyone’s life. We combine our relentless passion with the wisdom of nearly a century of experience to make this vision a reality, and we get results. We save lives by helping people stay well, helping people get well, by finding cures, and fighting back. Thanks in part to this work, nearly 12 million cancer survivors and countless others who have avoided the disease will celebrate a birthday this year.

How the American Cancer Society is saving lives

Together with our millions of supporters, the American Cancer Society is saving lives by helping people stay well, helping people get well, by finding cures and by fighting back. No other cancer fighting organization has such a comprehensive mission.
