How You Can Help


You can help win the War on Cancer by actively advocating increased research and accelerated discovery of better ways to prevent, diagnose, treat and cure cancer.

Join with others.

We recommend as a good starting point that you contact the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, It is a leading advocacy organization dedicated to winning the War on Cancer. As an American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network volunteer you can join with it and others to more effectively express your concern about the status of federal funding for cancer research, education, prevention and treatment in America today.

There are numerous other cancer advocacy organizations and research institutions that have similar goals, many of which concentrate on a particular form of cancer or area of cancer research. A number of those organizations are members with us in One Voice Against Cancer, which is a collaborative group of organizations representing millions of Americans in the national effort to cure cancer. You can find names of those other organizations at

Contact your elected officials.

If you support our proposals for legislation and programs to fight cancer with all available means and resources, please write to your federal and state government elected officials and urge them to enact new laws and provide all essential funding to find a cure of cancer at the earliest possible time.

Write to the media.

You can also make your views about conquering cancer heard by writing letters and sending your ideas and proposals to your newspaper or to other media where it will be published for others to read, obtain information on the urgent need for more cancer research, and possibly be inspired to get more actively involved themselves on the subject.

If you have questions about advocating to win the War on Cancer and supporting cancer research, contact us at any time.
