Mission
The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service.
Program Description

Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, the ACS has 12 chartered Divisions, more than 900 local offices nationwide, and a presence in more than 5,100 communities.

The Society's prevention programs focus on tobacco control, diet and nutrition, comprehensive school health education, and skin cancer. The Society's public and professional education programs provide information on prevention, early detection, and treatment, primarily targeting breast, prostate, and colorectal cancers.

A variety of service and rehabilitation programs are available to patients and their families. Through its advocacy program, the Society educates policy makers about cancer and how it affects the individuals and families they represent.
