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!
The work of the American Cancer Society benefits everyone regardless of where the funds are raised. Although all the answers to cancer may not be found in our specific community, our community will help fund those answers and cures and ultimately benefit from them. The American Cancer Society continues to fund innovative, high-impact research to scientists at institutions throughout the country, including right here in Wisconsin. Currently, there is more than $12.8 million in cancer research grants invested here in the state of Wisconsin, with $8.2 million at the University of Wisconsin-Madison
