Making a Difference with ACS CAN
The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) is the nation’s leading cancer advocacy organization that is working every day to make cancer issues a national priority.
Defeating cancer is as much a matter of public policy as scientific discovery. Every day, elected officials and policy makers at the federal, state, and local levels make decisions that affect the lives of more than 11 million cancer patients and survivors, their families and caregivers, and all those at risk for developing cancer. Advocacy is a critical part of the Society’s mission. To that end, the Society and its nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy affiliate, the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), work in partnership to ensure that elected officials and policy makers at all levels of government make the fight against cancer a top national priority.
