The American Cancer Society is a nationwide/worldwide cancer fighting organization with local impact. We save lives by helping people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking research; and by fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by engaging communities worldwide to join the fight.

The American Cancer Society is the cause fighting cancer on every front; standing shoulder to shoulder with cancer patients and those supporting them. Funds raised help the American Cancer Society attack cancer in dozens of ways, each of them critical to achieving a world without cancer - from developing breakthrough therapies to building supportive communities, from providing empowering resources to deploying activists to raise awareness.

We offer free programs and services to cancer patients and their families. Our groundbreaking research impacts cancer treatments for patients right here in our community. Our research provides much needed funding to young, innovative researchers in finding new and impactful cancer detection and treatments.

Our Core Values are: Integrity-we are driven by truth, ethics and fact of science; Compassion-caring for and supporting those touched by cancer; Courage-undeterred by challenges and bold in action; Determination;relentlessly pursing a world without cancer; Diversity-intentionally striving for equity through inclusion and respect.

"The American Cancer Society offered empathy and solutions and exceeded my expectations. I feel like God put me on the phone so that I could have an angel for the day. After a rough day of crying and worrying over insurance coverage problems that could hinder my cancer treatment, I could finally settle down and have dinner in happiness after the cancer information specialist's sympathetic conduct.The staff made a major impact on my life tonight. I went from crying and panic to I'm OK."

"About a month ago on a Saturday morning, I woke up at 4:30 a.m. and called the American Cancer Society for the first time. They were absolutely phenomenal with me on the phone. I wanted him [the cancer information specialist] to know that I have gone through surgery, and I am going to make it. That day, you made my life 110 percent easier - A+ service."

"When I first reached out to the American Cancer Society, I did not know much about my diagnosis and was scheduled for surgery. Initially, I felt overwhelmed, but you helped me feel better and offered to send a personal health manager kit to keep me organized. The staff was knowledgeable and took the time to answer my questions, as well as provided resources for my various needs. You were very kind, polite, generous, and a gem!"
