The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) is the nation's leading advocacy organization working every day to make issues facing cancer patients a national and state priority.
Advancing Research, Innovation and Health Equity
1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women in the United States will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.
As cancer prevention, early detection technology, targeted and immuno-therapies advance, we must also advance health equity so that all people have a fair and just opportunity to live longer, healthier lives free from cancer.
