The American Cancer Society Hawai’i Pacific works to save lives and create more birthdays in communities across the state of Hawai’i and in Guam. The American Cancer Society Hawai’i Pacific, Inc., is part of a nationwide 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.
Simply stated, American Cancer Society Hawai’i Pacific saves lives from cancer in four ways:
1) Helping people stay well by educating them on steps they can take to prevent cancer and find it early;
2) Helping people get well by providing accurate and timely informational, emotional and practical support services;
3) Funding cancer research to further understand its causes, determine how best to prevent it, and discover new ways to cure it; and
4) Fighting back by encouraging federal and state lawmakers to fight cancer by continuing government funding of cancer research, creating smoke free communities and improving access to affordable, quality health care.
