Improve the lives of people with cancer and their families through advocacy, research, and patient support, to ensure everyone has an opportunity to prevent, detect, treat, and survive cancer.
Who we are
The American Cancer Society is a leading cancer-fighting organization with a vision to end cancer as we know it, for everyone. We are improving the lives of people with cancer and their families as the only organization combating cancer through advocacy, research, and patient support, to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to prevent, detect, treat, and survive cancer.
In Washington State, approximately 42,170 people will be diagnosed with cancer in 2021. For cancer patients, their lifesaving treatments often result in side effects and require chemotherapy and radiation that need to be done multiple times during the week and occur for countless weeks depending on the needs of the patient. As you might understand, getting to treatment with mild or severe side effects can be a barrier. This, combined with the large financial burden as a result of increased medical expenses, means that many patients need help with rides to their treatments.
