About American Cancer Society
The American Cancer Society was founded in 1913 as the American Society for the Control of Cancer (ASCC) by 15 prominent physicians and business leaders in New York City. At that time, a cancer diagnosis amounted to near certain death. Rarely mentioned in public, this taboo disease was steeped in fear and denial. Physicians sometimes did not tell their patients they had cancer, and patients often did not tell their friends and families if they had been diagnosed. Now – the American Cancer Society is a 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.
Each year, an estimated 11,323 people in our area and more than 100,000 people across Florida will be diagnosed with cancer. The American Cancer Society is the one place they can turn to 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Learn more by visiting www.Cancer.org.
