The mission of the American Cancer Society is to save lives from all types of cancer. Together with millions of our supporters worldwide, we are there for those touched by cancer by helping them deal with a diagnosis now or in the future, or by avoiding a diagnosis altogether because of education and risk reduction.

As the largest voluntary health organization in the United States, the American Cancer Society is committed to saving lives from cancer. We combine our relentless passion with the wisdom of a century of experience to make this vision a reality, and we get results. We save lives by helping people stay well, helping people get well, by finding cures, and fighting back.
