12 Reasons to Give to the American Cancer Society

#1: Hope for a cure

ACS has invested more than $4.5 billion in cancer research since 1946, including funding 47 Nobel Prize winners. We fund groundbreaking research that helps us to understand cancer’s causes, how to prevent it, and discover new ways to cure it. We are committed to doubling our current annual research investment to approximately $240 million by 2021.

#2: Always There

The American Cancer Society is here 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to help guide patients and caregivers through their cancer experience. Cancer information, answers, and hope are available every minute of every day by calling 1-800-227-2345


 

#3: Free Rides

Rides to treatment are one way to help cancer patients since every day, thousands of cancer patients need a ride to treatment, but some may not have a way to get there. The ACS Road To Recovery program provides transportation to and from treatment for people with cancer who do not have access. 

#4: Staying for Free

Getting the best care sometimes means cancer patients must travel, placing an extra emotional and financial burden on patients and caregivers. Through our 30+ Hope Lodges, as well as our partnerships with hotels across the nation, we provided more than 517,000 free or reduced nights of lodging to patients in need.


#5: Clinical Trials

Take part in finding the cure by participating in a clinical trial. ACS Clinical Trials Matching Service is a free, confidential program that helps patients, their families and health care workers find cancer clinical trials most appropriate to a patient's medical and personal situation.


#6: Confidence

Some cancer treatments can affect your appearance. Through our Look Good Feel better program, we offer sessions to help patients learn ways to help with side effects like hair loss and skin changes. In 2016, we were able to help nearly 36,000 women manage appearance-related side effects of treatment.

#7: Survivors Network

Cancer Survivors Network is an online community by and for people with cancer and their families. Users can connect with others through member search, discussion boards, chat rooms, and private CSN email to share their story and connect with others who might be going through something similar. Over 300,000 patients, long-term survivors, and caregivers use this service monthly.

#8: Survivors

While 1 in 3 women, & 1 in 2 men in America will be diagnosed with cancer in the lifetime, through research and progress in cancer screening, early detection and treatment methods, more people are surviving cancer today than ever before. In fact, more than 15.5 million cancer survivors are estimated to live in the US today.


#9: Support System

A support system:   For more than 45 years, the American Cancer Society Reach To Recovery program has been helping people cope with their breast cancer experience. As breast cancer survivors, our Reach to Recovery volunteers give patients and family members an opportunity to express feeling, talk about fears and concerns, and ask questions of someone who has been there.


#10: Guidance

Nearly half of all cancer deaths could be avoided if we did what we know works – live healthier lifestyles, quit smoking, and get recommended cancer screenings. We are constantly working to increase awareness about how to prevent cancer by living a healthy lifestyle.
