Our mission is simple.
save lives and celebrate lives
every single day.


The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy and service. 

Progress in the war against cancer has triggered a 22% decline in U.S. deaths over the past two decades, but we can't stop there. Over 1.7 million new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed in the United States in 2019, and more than 606,000 Americans will lose their battle - that's over 1,600 people a day. The American Cancer Society is committed to changing these devastating odds. 


Research Dollars At Work In Washington!

Since 1946, the American Cancer Society has supported researchers at pivotal points in their career - to give them the support they need to keep great research going or to take their ideas from dream to reality. We are so proud to have helped more than 24,000 investigators make important advances in prevention, early detection, treatment, and care for those with cancer. The success of the American Cancer Society grant program is exemplified by the fact that 49 American Cancer Society-funded researchers have received a Nobel Prize for their work.

Jim  Moore

Northwest Aerospace Technologies

We are so excited to celebrate our Honoree this year, Jim Moore, past president of Northwest Aerospace Technologies.  Northwest Aerospace Technologies has been a part of our Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Snohomish County since 2010. Since then, their team has raised over $178,000 for the American Cancer Society. They've achieved this enormous amount of dollars by hosting a golf tournament each year. They also hold weekly raffles in their office up in Everett and auctions throughout the year. Their employees, including Jim, come each year to the strides walk. Jim's wife Roxanna is a breast cancer survivor. Each year NAT also hosts an annual Health Fair for it's employees and invites ACS to have a booth to share our mission. NAT is a subsidiary of Safran which is a global aviation and aerospace supplier with a diverse team and customer base. We are so lucky to have Jim's support of the American Cancer Society and thank him for his many years of helping us fight cancer.
