  • About Us

    We have a dedicated mission of fighting cancer through balanced programs of research, education, patient service, advocacy, and rehabilitation.

    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 in the United States.

     

    The goal of the American Cancer Society is to prevent cancer, save lives, and diminish suffering from cancer. All funds raised for the American Cancer Society support the mission of saving lives. Proceeds also support the Society’s education efforts – which bring more awareness to cancer in our community – and support services that provide patients, survivors and their families with a better quality of life.

     

    Donations made at the Portland Hope Ball will be put to very good use — to date, the American Cancer Society is the largest non-governmental funder of cancer research in the United States and has invested nearly $5 million dollars on cancer research in Oregon alone this calendar year. In the past ten years, ACS fundraisers in Oregon and SW Washington have raised over $56 million dollars in support!

     

    One example of the impact the ACS is having on real world problems: the financial support of the ACS was central to the research of Dr. Brian Druker at OHSU. Dr. Druker’s work resulted in the development of the drug Gleevec, which has reduced fatalities from chronic myelogenous leukemia from 97% to 3%!

     

    Your contributions at the Portland Hope Ball will lead to more victories like this and will make an invaluable impact in the fight against cancer.
