With the spread of COVID-19, cancer patients are more vulnerable than ever. We need your support to keep vital patient and caregiver resources available during this difficult time. Here’s what the American Cancer Society is doing right now to help:

PATIENT & FAMILY SERVICES

ACS CAN is working tirelessly to continue to advance our cancer-fighting mission through public policy during these trying times.

  • Online Days of Action: Volunteers contacting legislators in support of state priorities
  • Stimulus Packages: Ensuring the patient community and nonprofit sector are included, i.e. tax relief for charitable organizations.
  • Policy Provisions: Critical funding for access to care, including funding for community health centers, increased federal Medicaid match to provided expanded health coverage for nation’s most vulnerable, and guaranteed coverage for COVID-19 testing.

As always, lifesaving cancer research continues, aiming to find more – and better – treatments, uncover factors that may cause cancer, and improve cancer patients’ quality of life.
