One hundred years ago, the American Cancer Society began the fight of a lifetime – the fight against cancer. After 100 years of saving lives and creating more birthdays, we’re leading the way in working tirelessly to transform cancer from deadly to treatable and from treatable to preventable. We want to finish the fight against Cancer. In fact, we’ve never been more ready to put the American Cancer Society out of business.
That’s why we’re embarking on our most ambitious undertaking yet. Each year, we help cancer patients everywhere get the help they need when they need it.
As the largest voluntary health organization, the American Cancer Society is passionately committed to saving lives from cancer. We are working to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays – a world where cancer never steals another year from anyone’s life. The ACS combines relentless passion with the wisdom of nearly a century of experience to make this vision a reality, and they get results. The ACS saves lives by helping people stay well, helping people get well, by finding cures, and fighting back. Thanks in part to this work; nearly 12 million cancer survivors and countless others who have avoided the disease will celebrate a birthday this year.
As the official sponsor of birthdays, we know how important each and every birthday is!
