The Problem

Cancer is a major disease that impacts everyone, including children. Cancer affects all parts of the body, including the brain, lungs, colon, and breast. People's behaviors increase their risk of cancer. Some of these behaviors include smoking and being overweight. Annually 1.8 percent of men, 1.4 percent of women, and 4.4 percent children die in the U.S. per year from cancer. Together we can help find the cure and eliminate cancer.

How you can help?

There are many ways to help. You can donate locally to your local American Cancer Society, participate in Relay For Life, or donate at the national level to numerous organizations including American Cancer Association, American Childhood Cancer Organization, and St. Jude's Hospital. St. Jude's Hospital is a hospital that cares for children with cancer and focuses on cancer research to find a cure for cancer. They also help families of children treated at their hospital by paying for their medical costs.
