The American Cancer Society is the global leader in the fight against cancer. Since our research program began in 1946, we have been behind nearly every major cancer breakthrough, including the use of chemotherapy, mammograms, colon cancer screening, breast cancer drugs and treatment options, and the link between cigarettes and lung cancer. To date, we have funded more researchers who have gone on to win the Nobel Prize (47) than any other organization in the world. Our current research program is taking us further into the future of fighting cancer than ever before, including grants that focus on using our own bodies to combat cancer, new ways of treating cancer, detecting cancer sooner, and monitoring the spread of this disease.
We would like to partner with Twitch streamers to plan and host an annual fundraising event on Twitch. The goal will be to provide an entertaining and meaningful experience for you and your followers, that allows you to celebrate cancer survivors, remembers those lost to cancer, and fight back.
The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service.
