ABOUT THE

AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY

At the American Cancer Society, we're on a mission to free the world from cancer. Until we do, we'll be funding and conducting research, sharing expert information, supporting patients, and spreading the word about prevention. All so you can live longer — and better.

In addition to celebrating the advances made in cancer treatment and prevention, the Seattle Hope Gala is also an opportunity to raise funds in support of our mission. Since its inception, the American Cancer Society has played a role in most major cancer research breakthroughs. We currently strive to expand our research investment to $250 million a year by 2021, increase the HPV vaccination rate to 80% by 2026, as well as an overall increase in access to care and prevention with a special focus on cancer reduction for underserved communities.
