Cancer hasn't stopped. So neither can we.
For the first time in its 100-year history, the American Cancer Society's mission to save lives and reduce cancer mortality rates is at risk from COVID-19.
Cancer doesn't stop for a pandemic! In all communities, cancer patients and their caregivers need us to forge ahead with our work. We can't and won't allow progress to be put on hold because of COVID-19. At risk are more and better treatments and discoveries that will improve and save lives.
The American Cancer Society has played a role in almost every major cancer research breakthrough in the last century and have funded the research of 49 investigators who went on to win the Nobel Prize. Our rigorous peer-review process is top notch, and we have reach into over 200 institutions nationwide - which allows us to invest in the very best research projects.
We know what to do when it comes to cancer research. But we need your help at this critical moment.
Your gift of $25 could help fund one pair of primers for a chain reaction, used to make multiple copies of a DNA segment for further analysis.
Your gift of $50 will help fund pipette tips that are used to study patient samples.
