Our mission is to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.
We’re doing everything in our power to prevent cancer. We promote healthy lifestyles by issuing cancer guidelines for early detection, helping people avoid tobacco, and reducing barriers to healthy eating and exercise.
If you are diagnosed, we’re there for you. Every step of the way. Whether it’s providing emotional support, the latest cancer information, or a home away from home when treatment is far away, we’re there when you need us — 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We help you stay healthy and thrive after treatment. We research ways for survivors to not only live longer, but live better. And we offer information and tools for staying healthy, both physically and emotionally.
Cancer is a worthy opponent, to say the least. It has a formidable nature, a resourceful manner, and a destructive appetite. But, cancer will never have what we have – humanity. Humanity – made up of courage, determination, innovation, passion, empathy, and caring.
These are the values of humanity that are giving us the advantage over cancer. With your support, we will save more lives than ever before. Together, we are stronger than cancer.
