This year Fund the Mission gives you the opportunity to support paid transportation services to cancer patients. Transportation is consistently named as one of the top non-medical needs of cancer patients. You can have the best cancer treatment center in the world. But if you don't have a ride to get there it is absolutely worthless. Simply put, if cancer patients cannot get to their treatment appointments their likelihood of survival is compromised. By ensuring that patients complete their treatment, we are able to increase the number of cancer survivors. Your financial support would help to fund Community Transportation Grant Programs with Health Systems to provide transportation service to patients.
For more than a 100 years, The American Cancer Society has been leading the fight to end cancer. With your support, we have helped usher in an era where more people survive cancer than ever before. By translating our research findings into action, we've seen a 20% decline in US cancer death rates since the early 1990s.
