American Cancer Society
 

The American Cancer Society (ACS) is a nationwide, community-based voluntary health organization. Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, the ACS has state divisions and more than 3,400 local offices. The goal of the American Cancer Society (ACS) is to prevent cancer, save lives, and diminish suffering from cancer. Their web site, above, provides a wealth of information regarding cancer treatment, statistics, clinical trials, support groups, etc.

Cancer Screenings
 

Screen for Life is the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) National Colorectal Cancer Action Campaign which, informs men and women aged 50 years or older about the importance of having regular colorectal cancer screening tests. The campaign was launched on March 2, 1999 by then-U.S. Surgeon General David Satcher and is based on extensive review of existing communication and behavioral science literature, and formative research and concept testing. Approximately 170 focus groups, including both consumers and health professionals, have been conducted in more than 25 cities across the country to assess knowledge, behaviors, and screening practices of the target audiences. The CDC continues to develop campaign messages and materials based on this research.

Go Red for Women
 

Go Red for Women is the American Heart Association’s nationwide movement that celebrates the energy, passion and power women have to band together and wipe out heart disease. Thanks to the participation of millions of people across the country, the color red and the red dress have become linked with the ability all women have to improve their heart health and live stronger, longer lives.

National Cancer Institute
 
National Cancer Institute (NCI) is a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), one of eight agencies that compose the Public Health Service (PHS) in the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). The NCI, established under the National Cancer Institute Act of 1937, is the Federal Government's principal agency for cancer research and training. The National Cancer Act of 1971 broadened the scope and responsibilities of the NCI and created the National Cancer Program. Over the years, legislative amendments have maintained the NCI authorities and responsibilities and added new information dissemination mandates as well as a requirement to assess the incorporation of state-of-the-art cancer treatments into clinical practice.
Susan G. Komen for the Cure
 

Susan G. Komen for the Cure - Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever.

In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure is the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures.
