The impact of COVID-19 will reduce its ability to fund cancer research by 50% in 2020 -- the lowest investment this century if current trends continue. Free transportation and lodging programs-- which were temporarily paused to protect vulnerable cancer patients -- are reopening soon. But reopening and sustaining these programs comes at a significant cost.
For the first time in its 107-year history, the American Cancer Society's mission to save lives and reduce cancer mortality rates is at risk from COVID-19.
Cancer doesn't stop for a pandemic! In all communities, cancer patients and their caregivers need us to forge ahead with our work. Because patients need us now more than ever, we, in turn, need you more than ever. Your 100% tax deductible donation will enable the American Cancer Society to provide the resources necessary to support cancer patients and communities.
