The American Cancer Society is a global grassroots force of 2.5 million volunteers saving lives in every community. As the largest voluntary health organization, the Society’s efforts have contributed to a 25 percent decline in the cancer death rate in the U.S. since 1991, driven by less smoking, better treatments, and earlier detection. The American Cancer Society is finding cures as the United States largest private, not-for-profit investor in cancer research, ensuring people facing cancer have the help they need and continuing the fight for access to quality health care, lifesaving screenings and more. The Society’s global outreach efforts promote prevention and healthy living, reduce pain and suffering from cancer and help support cancer organizations in low and middle income countries, and provide a platform for advocacy and patient support in nearly 30 countries.
