Mission and Vision

ACS CAN is the nation's leading cancer advocacy organization that is working everyday to make cancer a national priority.



The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) is the non-profit, non-partisan advocacy affiliate of the American Cancer Society. ACS CAN is dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major public health problem through voter education and issue campaigns aimed at influencing candidates and lawmakers to support laws and policies that will help people fight cancer.

Many of the most important health care decisions about cancer are made by your state legislature, in Congress and in the White House. ACS CAN empowers regular people to be part of the growing national movement that is fighting back against cancer.
