Mission

At the American Cancer Society, we're on a mission to free the world from cancer. Until we do, we'll be funding and conducting research, sharing expert information, supporting patients, and spreading the word about prevention. All so you can live longer — and better. Dedicated to helping people who face cancer. Learn about cancer research, patient services, early detection, treatment and education at cancer.org.Whether we're working in a community near you or one halfway around the world, our mission remains the same: to save lives.
