American Cancer Society

Attacking cancer from every angle

For over 100 years, the American Cancer Society has been dedicated to eliminating cancer and supporting every individual affected by cancer. Through breakthrough cancer research, preventative screenings, and programs like Road to Recovery – the American Cancer Society works to ensure that anyone impacted by cancer is fully supported and that we defeat cancer once and for all.

The American Cancer Society has contributed to a 27% drop in cancer death rates since 1991 in the US, translating into 2.6 million fewer cancer deaths. In Ohio alone, an estimated 67,150 new cases of cancer will have been found in 2019. This is why the American Cancer Society hosts critical fundraising events such as Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, Relay for Life, C2C Relay Run, Pan Ohio Hope Ride, The Columbus Cattle Baron’s Ball, and so much more. In the growing and inclusive environment of Columbus, the American Cancer Society can ensure that no one fights cancer alone. Learn more about the American Cancer Society at or
