About Us

If we are to end suffering and death from cancer, it won't just happen in the doctor's office or research lab. This movement must start at the statehouse and in Congress. And, it will be led by volunteers - regular people whose lives have been impacted by cancer - rallying together to demand change from their elected officials. We are the organization empowering volunteers to do just that - influence change and impact the future of cancer. From gaining dramatic increases in funding for cancer research to ensuring all Americans have access to cancer care, our work is saving lives and leading to new innovative breakthroughs in how to fight this disease.

Here at ACS CAN Alaska, we fight for laws that help cancer patients and prevent cancer. We do this with the help of dedicated volunteers from all across our state. Join us in making a difference for Alaskans now and for years to come!
