About American Cancer Society

The American Cancer Society is a nationwide, community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem. Their Global Headquarters is located in Atlanta, Georgia, and they have regional and local offices throughout the country to ensure that they have a presence in every community.


Most people know the ACS for their research, but they do so much more. The American Cancer Society attacks cancer from every angle, promoting healthy lifestyles to help people prevent cancer, while also researching cancer and its causes to find more answers and better treatments. The ACS fights for lifesaving policy changes and provides everything from emotional support to the latest cancer information for those who have been touched by cancer.
