The fight is not new, and we are not new to the fight.

League of Heroes

Cancer affects 1 in 3 Americans, but it doesn’t affect everyone equally. The American Cancer Society is working to reduce cancer death rates by 40% across the country by 2035. But to make that vision a reality, we must focus on communities that experience greater disparities in cancer screening, diagnosis & survival.
