Who We Are

The ACS strives to provide support and treatment for cancer patients and their families by helping them learn about making treatment decisions, coping with side effects, handling financial matters, caregiving, and living well after cancer. The ACS also has programs and services to help manage cancer treatment and recovery and finding emotional support.
