About the Society
The American Cancer Society Hawai’i Pacific works to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer in communities across the state of Hawai’i and in Guam.
The Hawai’i Pacific offices are a part of the West Region which serves the needs in communities across Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, and California.
Nationwide we are a community-based voluntary health organization whose mission is to eliminate cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer through research, education, advocacy, and service.
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 Hawai’i.
Helping You Stay Well
By taking steps to prevent cancer or detect it early, when it is most treatable. We offer tips, tools, and online resources to help you live a healthy lifestyle to reduce your cancer risk, and we help you understand what cancer screenings are right for you.
By working with lawmakers everywhere to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities around the globe to join our fight.
Helping You Get Well
By being in your corner around the clock and guiding you through every step of the cancer experience. We provide information to help you and your loved ones make decisions about care, help you find moral support from others who have faced cancer, and offer free services like transportation to and from cancer treatment or a free place to stay while receiving treatment far from home.
By funding and conducting groundbreaking research into cancer’s causes, cures, and treatments. As the largest non-governmental funder of cancer research in the United States, having spent more than $3.4 billion on cancer research since 1946, we’ve played a role in nearly every major cancer breakthrough in recent history.
