Today, almost 1,670 people in the US will die of cancer. That adds up to more than 609,820 Americans dying of cancer this year alone. That’s why, with our 1.5 million volunteers, we are taking action. By taking what we’ve learned through research and translating it into action, we’ve contributed to a 32% decrease in the overall US cancer death rate since 1991. That means that we helped avoid nearly 3.5 million cancer deaths during that time.
The American Cancer Society has programs and services to help you manage cancer treatment and recovery and find the emotional support you need. And best of all, our help is free. Find programs and services in Hawaii.
