The American Cancer Society combines an unyielding passion with nearly a century of experience to save lives and end cancer for good. As a global grassroots force of three million volunteers, we fight for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community.
We save lives by helping you stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early, helping you get well by being there for you during and after a diagnosis, by finding cures through groundbreaking discovery and fighting back through public policy. As the nation’s largest non-governmental investor in cancer research, contributing more than $3.8 billion, we turn what we know about cancer into what we do. As a result, an estimated 13.7 million people in America who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will be celebrating birthdays this year.
The South Atlantic Division is the largest Division of the American Cancer Society serving a population of more than 40 million in Delaware, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia and Washington, D.C.
The South Atlantic Division’s newsroom provides news and information about the fight against cancer and is updated regularly by the South Atlantic Division media relations team.
