ACS CAN is the nation’s leading cancer advocacy organization that is working every day to make cancer issues a top national priority.
Many of the most important decisions about cancer are made outside of your doctor’s office. Lawmakers play a critical role in determining how much progress our country makes toward defeating cancer. ACS CAN empowers regular people to be part of the growing national movement that is fighting back against cancer.
ACS CAN, the nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy affiliate of the American Cancer Society supports proven measures that are helping to defeat cancer. We mobilize cancer advocates to hold lawmakers accountable to their constituents for the decisions they make related to cancer research, prevention, early detection, and treatment.
Together, we CAN defeat cancer!
For over 25 years, the Coaches vs. Cancer program, in collaboration with the National
Association of Basketball Coaches, has united coaches and fans nationwide to help the
American Cancer Society defeat a common enemy – cancer. Because of their passion and
dedicated support, the impact has been felt in communities nationwide.
Through fundraising and education initiatives, the Coaches vs. Cancer program has supported
the American Cancer Society in helping to save more lives from cancer. Since 1993, coaches
have raised more than $110 million for the American Cancer Society.
