American Cancer Fund provides direct care support to cancer patients via web based services, emails, and phone calls because knowledge is the best medicine. We help you find all the resources you need to fight cancer. Please help us create more survivors.

The services offered by the American Cancer Fund are unique and have literally saved lives. **Such as getting Novartis to provide a melanoma drug for free, facilitating a free mammogram, or helping a patient understand their treatment options.**

When individuals diagnosed with cancer reach out to us for assistance, we do everything in our power to help, support and inform. The American Cancer Fund® is a legitimate and reliable charity helping nearly 2 million cancer patients annually but we currently have a serious funding problem…. We are looking to everyone to help us continue the important online and off-line cancer support services we provide. Please support us in providing these necessary services. People with cancer need our help NOW.

We have been helping cancer patients since the 1970’s. Our mission has always been to arm patients with all the resources they need to fight cancer. We provide research, education, support, and empowerment. The American Cancer Fund® actually spends 89 cents of every dollar on our support and cancer services and it is important to note that this is one of the highest ratios in the industry. Please take a minute to help us and hopefully allow us to raise some much needed funds. It is only with your help that we can create more survivors.

Cancer is arguably one of the most terrifying words in any language. Individuals diagnosed with cancer automatically assume this to be a death sentence and experience a range of emotions akin to the grief process people go through when they have lost a loved one. Support, information, resources, and guidance are but some of the vehicles to turn a perceived death sentence into a survivor story.

In the fight against cancer, knowledge truly is power. Individuals, families and friends affected by cancer need information, support, and guidance upon diagnosis. The nature of the disease is such that timely intervention may translate into life or death. The traumatic effect that a cancer diagnosis has on individuals and their friends and family is such that the information and support offered must be clear and direct yet kind and filled with empathy. The American Cancer Fund, established as a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, was created precisely to provide education and information in a kind caring manner. We strive to empower individuals diagnosed with cancer and their families to make the best educated decision about their treatment options and resources. As a virtual web- and helpline-based organization, the American Cancer Fund’s community spreads across the country. Every day people from all of our communities reach out to us in search of the tools they need to fight for their lives and the lives of a loved one diagnosed with cancer.

Each cancer patient and his/her family is different. The American Cancer Fund has trained staff and volunteers who listen to the individual concerns and fears, and help him/her develop an individualized plan of action to meet their needs. Some of our helpline callers may be seeking mammogram screenings in their state, while others may have a diagnosis of esophageal cancer and want to know the best available treatment options.

Once again, please support us now with your generous donation so that we can continue to assist all those dealing with a cancer diagnosis. Help us create more survivors today.
