Together with our millions of supporters, the American Cancer Society (ACS) saves lives and creates a world with less cancer and more birthdays by helping people stay well, helping people get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back.
ACS helps people take steps to prevent cancer or detect it at its earliest, most treatable stage. They do this through prevention and early detection educational efforts that are helping people stop smoking, get the right screening tests, and live healthy lifestyles.
ACS funds groundbreaking research that helps us understand cancer’s causes, determine how best to prevent it, and discover new ways to cure it. They work with lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and rally communities worldwide to join the fight.http://www.cancer.org
