Coaches vs. Cancer
Every dollar raised through Coaches vs. Cancer of Philadelphia helps the American Cancer Society further its mission of saving lives and creating a world with more birthdays. In 2011, $1 million was raised through Coaches vs. Cancer in the Southeast Region.
We’re Helping People Stay Well
In the fight against cancer, prevention is our greatest ally. The American Cancer Society is here anytime, day or night, connecting people to life-saving knowledge, tips on making healthy decisions and screening guidelines to prevent cancer at 1.800.227.2345 or cancer.org.
We’re Helping People Get Well
Whether it is through a ride to treatment, emotional support, or help navigating everyday concerns, the American Cancer Society helps people get well through life-saving programs and services at no cost. With your support, cancer patients and their caregivers can find a home away from home during treatment at the Astra-Zeneca Hope Lodge in Philadelphia, which provided over 7,000 free nights and saved families over $1 million in lodging expenses last year. Your donation also supports a pediatric cancer patient navigator position that puts staff and resources at the hospital level to help guide children battling cancer – and their families – through their journey from diagnosis to recovery.
We’re Finding Cures
The American Cancer Society is at the forefront of groundbreaking cancer research, with more than $54 million American Cancer Society research grants in effect in the East Central Division. If you are between the ages of 30 and65, you can help the Society find a cure by participating in the Society’s Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3) enrollment taking place at select events and locations across the Southeast Region.

We’re Fighting Back
The American Cancer Society has changed the fight against cancer from an individual struggle to a collective movement for real and lasting change. Whether it is through empowering community events, grassroots advocacy efforts, or unique volunteer experiences, the American Cancer Society offers everyone a chance to help save lives.
