Fight cancer through research.
Thanks to our many supporters and volunteers, we are making progress every day in the fight against cancer. Because of people like you, we invest more in cancer research than any other nonprofit, non-government organization, leading to groundbreaking discoveries in prevention, early detection, and treatment … and more lives saved. Check out what we’re accomplishing with your help.
Advocate for change.
Life and death decisions about cancer are made every day, not just in the doctor's office but in Congress and statehouses across the country. Our nonprofit, nonpartisan partner advocacy organization, the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network..SM.. (ACS CAN), is working to make cancer issues a national priority to ensure all people have access to quality cancer screenings and treatment.
Provide a community of support.
We are headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, with a presence in more than 3,400 communities.
