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.
The American Cancer Society is currently funding 15 grants in Washington totaling more than $9.4 million.

Your Donations Make A difference
What does it take to outsmart cancer? Research. We've invested more than $5 billion in cancer research since 1946, all to find more - and better - treatments, uncover factors that may cause cancer, and improve cancer patients' quality of life. Our fundraising events are key to fighting for our mission and building a supportive cancer community. Donate today to help us save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.
