The American Cancer Society's mission is to eliminate cancer by preventing it, saving lives, and diminishing suffering.
The American Cancer Society is the nationwide community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer offers many year round volunteer opportunities. Teen volunteers can assist on various levels including helping with office administration, mailings, event material preparation, research, phone calls and more. Flexible time commitments make it easy to fit busy schedules. There are also numerous opportunities available during the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk weekend.
