About American Cancer Society, Inc.

The American Cancer Society has a vision to end cancer as we know it, for everyone. For more than 110 years, we have helped lead an evolution in the way the world prevents, detects, treats, and thinks about cancer. As the nation’s preeminent cancer-fighting organization, we fund and conduct research, share expert information, support people with cancer, spread the word about prevention, and through our advocacy affiliate, the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), advocate for public policy change.

We are committed to ensuring that ALL people have a fair and just opportunity to prevent, detect, treat, and survive cancer – regardless of income, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability status, or where they live. Thanks in large part to our decades of work, a cancer diagnosis does not come without hope, and the cancer journey is not one that is traveled alone.

Our mission work focuses on targeted efforts that include making investments in community engagement, advancing research, improving equitable access to care, urging people to get regular cancer screening, and working to reduce long-standing disparities in cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment outcomes.
