More than 1.8 million new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed in the United States in 2020. Without the American Cancer Society’s nearly 75 years of investments in research, patients wouldn’t have as many effective treatment options and preventative tools. As the largest private not-for-profit, non-governmental funder of cancer research in the US, we’ve played a role in many of the major cancer research breakthroughs in the last century.
We can’t stop now. We are committed to ensuring that live-saving research continues, and innovative ideas are not lost.
Did you know that the American Cancer Society has funded research right here in Nebraska? Doctors with UNMC have received two research grants this year totaling $972,000! Groundbreaking research would not be possible without the support of people like you and me. No donation is too small and every dollar makes an impact. Please support my Colors of Cancer campaign today and join me in the fight against cancer.
