Cancer mortality rates in the US have fallen by over 20 percent during the past two decades: that’s 500 lives saved from cancer every day. We are working to save 1,000 lives a day domestically and one day 10,000 lives a day worldwide.
Today 2 out of 3 people diagnosed with cancer survive. Our goal is to make that 3 out of 3.
We are putting all of our efforts toward saving more lives, faster. Today we’re focusing on key areas where we know we can make progress quickly. We’re honing in on the biggest cancer killers, where we have proven strategies to help reduce the burden, like tobacco control and colon cancer screening.
Because of you the American Cancer Society can save more lives from cancer.
$4.6 billion invested in research since 1946.
