Tell Congress: Increase Funding for Cancer Research

The federal government is, by far, the largest funder of cancer research. In recent years, we have made great progress in the war on cancer. But, if the government cuts or slows down funding now, the momentum and medical breakthroughs could come to a screeching halt.

Tell Congress to Double Research...
Take Action TODAY with ACS CAN!

ACS CAN is asking Congress to double funding for cancer research so we can double the hope to beat cancer.

Here are other ways you can get involved in our campaign to double funding for cancer research:

  • Have advances in cancer treatment and screenings affected you or your family? Tell us about it. Sharing your story will help us make a difference!
  • Sign up for mobile updates. Text RESEARCH to 73585 to receive updates on funding for cancer research and programs on your phone.
