American Cancer Society / Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

 

American Cancer Society

 

 

 

The American Cancer Society is a nationwide, community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, the ACS has regional and local offices throughout the country that support 11 geographical Divisions and ensure we have a presence in every community.

 

Your American Cancer Society is in your corner around the clock to help you stay well and get well, to find cures, and to fight back.

  • We help you take steps to prevent cancer or find it at its earliest, most treatable stage.
  • We’re in your corner around the clock to help you through every step of your cancer experience.
  • We fund and conduct research that helps us better understand, prevent, and find cures for cancer.
  • We work with lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and rally communities worldwide to join the fight.
  • We're working every day to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. But we can't continue our progress while millions of underinsured and uninsured Americans don't have access to lifesaving cancer care. Learn more about what we're doing to ensure everyone has access to quality health care and how you can help.

 

STAY HEALTHY 

Many cancer deaths could be prevented by making healthy choices like not smoking, staying at a healthy weight, eating right, keeping active, and getting recommended screening tests. In this section you can learn how to help lower your chances of getting cancer, plus what screening tests the American Cancer Society recommends, and when.

 

LEARN ABOUT CANCER Types and Topics

More than one million people in the United States get cancer each year. Whether you have cancer or are close to someone who does, understanding what to expect can help you cope. In this section you can find basic information about cancer and what causes it, as well as in-depth information about specific types of cancer, their risk factors, early detection, diagnosis, and treatment options.

 

FIND SUPPORT AND TREATMENT

Learn about making treatment decisions, coping with side effects, handling financial matters, caregiving, and living well after cancer. The American Cancer Society also has programs and services to help you manage cancer treatment and recovery and find the emotional support you need. And best of all, our help is free.

 

EXPLORE RESEARCH

Research is at the heart of our mission.  For more than 65 years, the American Cancer Society has been finding answers that save lives - from changes in lifestyle to new approaches in therapies to improving cancer patients' quality-of-life.  In fact, no single nongovernmental, not-for-profit organization in the US has invested more to find the causes and cures of cancer.

 

ACS LODGING PROGRAMS

Getting the best care sometimes means cancer patients must travel away from home. This can place an extra emotional and financial burden on patients and caregivers during an already challenging time. The American Cancer Society is trying to make this difficult situation easier for both cancer patients and their families through our lodging programs.

 

 GET INVOLVED

Cancer's biggest fear? You. In this section you can learn the many ways to support your American Cancer Society with tax-deductible donations, volunteer opportunities, and life-changing events such as Making Strides Against Breast Cancer® and Relay For Life®.
