Why we support the Relay for Life & American Cancer Society


Thanks in part to your generous donations, the American Cancer Society is saving lives by helping people stay well and get well, finding cures, and fighting back against cancer. Your donations have helped us:
  • Develop guidelines for recommended cancer screenings, nutrition, and physical activity
  • Offer help with free lodging for cancer patients and their caregivers when receiving treatment far from home at American Cancer Society Hope Lodge® facilities
  • Connect patients with thousands of different treatment options through our clinical trials matching service
  • Offer support 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 1-800-227-2345 and online at cancer.org
  • Assist cancer patients, families, and caregivers through support programs
  • Have a hand in nearly every major cancer research breakthrough of the last century, including funding 46 Nobel Prize-winning researchers early in their careers
  • Implement groundbreaking community research throughout the nation through local enrollments of Cancer Prevention Study research programs
  • Connect uninsured, underinsured, and low-income women with breast and cervical cancer screening tests and follow-up treatment
By supporting a Relay For Life event, you help us all move closer to our ultimate goal - to finish the fight against cancer.
