The American Cancer Society is attacking cancer from every angle. 

We promote 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.

Every action we take moves us one step closer to a world free from the pain and suffering of cancer.
