About American Cancer Society

Together with our millions of supporters, the American Cancer Society (ACS) saves lives by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back.


The American Cancer Society is a nationwide, community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to achieving a world free from the pain and suffering of cancer. More than 11 million cancer survivors are alive today, thanks in part to our work during the past 100 years. In fact today, more of us are surviving cancer than dying from it. We are determined to save lives and celebrate life. We want to drive cancer into insignificance. Today 1 in 3 people will get cancer in their lifetimes. With your help, we’re finding causes and cures as the nation’s largest private, not-for-profit investor in cancer research, ensuring people facing cancer have the help they need and continuing the fight for access to quality health care, life saving screenings, clean air, and more.


Together, we are a united force against all cancers.
