The American Cancer Society is committed to helping cancer patients and their families and that hasn't changed despite the effects we are all facing from COVID-19. Your support will help us save more lives from cancer and to preserve the next generation of cancer research.
Despite the incredibly challenging start of the decade, we are still seeing progress being made in the fight against cancer. As the nation’s preeminent cancer-fighting organization, the American Cancer Society is committed to moving us even closer to a world without cancer by continuing to build on this progress. In 2019, we set a nationwide goal to reduce the cancer death rate (from that reported in 2015) by an additional 40% by 2035, which could lead to approximately 1.3 million fewer cancer deaths between 2020 and 2035.
We are working to achieve this goal through targeted efforts that include investments in research, improving equitable access to care, urging people to resume cancer screening, and working to reduce long-standing disparities in cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment outcomes.
