What is CEOs Against Cancer?
The American Cancer Society's CEOs Against Cancer program is the premier partnership of world leading CEOs dedicated to eliminating unnecessary deaths and suffering from cancer nationally and globally in the 21st century. Our vision is to leverage the collective knowledge, power and resources of the American Cancer Society and business community to turn the tide of this epidemic and chart a path to a world with less cancer for people everywhere.
There are more than 500 members of the American Cancer Society CEOs Against Cancer program who represent a powerful network that includes the most prominent names in business today. The companies led by these chief executives employ and impact more than 6.5 million workers across the United States. Members bring the passion, expertise, and resources needed to find, prevent, treat, and cure this disease, which costs U.S. employers $225.8 billion each year.
The CEOs Against Cancer initiative leverages the power of global thought leaders to inspire a movement within organizations that directly improves the lives of employees and communities, all while making a meaningful investment in the fight against cancer.
CEOs from the world's top companies are uniting with the American Cancer Society to change the course of cancer. It's a unique and powerful group of executives who are committed to saving lives and improving their company's bottom line. Their support and dedication is nothing short of remarkable. But it's no time to rest. Cancer is a relentless enemy but we are just as relentless in our fight to end the disease.
