American Cancer Society grateful for support

With the holiday season quickly approaching, the American Cancer Society would like to say thank you for the support over the past year. We could not continue our life saving mission without your support. This year, there are more people surviving cancer than ever before.

Thanks to your generous support, the American Cancer Society offers cancer patients and their families a variety of programs to help make the cancer experience a little easier.

Examples include:

Free or low-cost transportation assistance to and from cancer treatments

Free lodging for those who have to travel far from home for treatment

Free wigs and assistance with treatment-related physical side effects

Emotional support programs that connect newly diagnosed breast cancer patients with survivors

Cancer education classes

Clinical trials matching service

An online support network
