As a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers, and with programs in more than 20 countries, they fight for every birthday threatened by cancer in communities worldwide. They save lives by helping people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery; and by fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying people across the globe to join the fight.
