Without volunteers like all of you, we would not exist. You are the true backbone of the American Cancer Society and Relay For Life. There is not enough participation in the world that we could give you to show you how grateful we are. Thank you, thank you, thank you!


Thank you to the Stanford University School of Medicine Career Center for inviting us to their Biomedical & Bioscience Industry Expo last week! We had a fantastic time and we hope to see some of you out at Relay!


Are you a cancer survivor who had a bone marrow transplant? A breast cancer survivor who used tamoxifen or Herceptin? A multiple myeloma survivor treated with Darzalex, a lymphoma patient treated with Rituxan or a lung cancer survivor treated with Crizoban (Xalkori)? Do you know ACS supported that research? We want to hear your story. Email [email protected] to be a part of our research success!


Today is ! Did you know that cancer accounts for 1 in 8 deaths worldwide? That's more than HIV/Aids, tuberculosis and malaria combined, but cancer does not stand a chance against us. We promise to continue to spread awareness, educate our classmates and fundraise for research to find a cure that brings us a world without cancer.

One person can make a difference. Nowhere is that more evident than in the founding of Relay For Life. In 1985 Dr. Gordy Klatt circled the track for a grueling 24 hours to raise money for his local American Cancer Society office. This was the beginning of Relay For Life. You, too, can make a difference – Click on the link to register or donate to our Relay today!


Relay For Life participants and donors remember loved ones lost to cancer and honor those battling the disease by dedicating luminaria bags. Luminaria bags are transformed and illuminated after dark at every Relay For Life event. Click on the link to register or donate to our Relay today!

Your generous donations help the American Cancer Society make this information accessible to everyone who needs it. Click on the link to register or donate to our Relay today!


People with cancer and their loved do not have to face cancer alone. The Cancer Survivors Network is a free online community created by and for people living with cancer and their families.

The Look Good Feel Better program is a unique and meaningful way to help patients learn beauty techniques and feel better about themselves during cancer treatment. In person workshops help women with cancer manage the appearance related side effects of treatment.

Your generous donations help to provide specialized training to program volunteers as well as high quality cosmetics kits for all Look Good Feel Better participants.

Getting the best care sometimes means cancer patients must travel away from home. The American Cancer Society is trying to make these difficult situations easier for both cancer patients and their families through its lodging programs. Your generous donation of $100 helps to provide a cancer patient 5 free nights at a Hope Lodge. Click on the link to register or donate to our Relay today!


Our Reach to Recovery volunteers are specially trained to help people through their experience by offering a measure of comfort and an opportunity for emotional grounding. Most importantly they offer understanding, support and up to date information including literature for spouses or partners, children, friends and other loved ones. Your generous donations help the American Cancer Society match the newly diagnosed with these trained survivors who offer hope because they themselves have survived breast cancer.
