American Cancer Society

More than one hundred years ago the American Cancer Soceity began the fight of a lifetime — the fight against cancer. Now it's time to join together to finish the fight. The American Cancer Society (ACS) works relentlessly to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Together with millions of our supporters worldwide, we’re helping people stay well, helping people get well, finding cures, and fighting back against cancer.
