Our 24/7 cancer helpline provides information and answers for people dealing with cancer. We can connect you with trained cancer information specialists who will answer questions about a cancer diagnosis and provide guidance and a compassionate ear.
Our highly trained specialists are available 24/7 via phone and on weekdays can assist through video calls and online chat. We connect patients, caregivers, and family members with essential services and resources at every step of their cancer journey. Ask us how you can get involved and support the fight against cancer. Some of the topics we can assist with include:
For medical questions, we encourage you to review our information with your doctor.
Join the American Cancer Society DetermiNation team and volunteer to dedicate your participation in a marathon, triathlon, cycling race, or other endurance events to the fight against cancer. DetermiNation events provide athletes with access to professional training, an unparalleled community of support, and inspiration every step of the way. Your personal race victory will change your life, but the finish line will be just the beginning. Your triumph also means a triumph over cancer – where every step you take and every mile you conquer brings us closer to a world without cancer.
When you volunteer to join the DetermiNation team you are eligible to receive a number of exclusive membership benefits which may include free team training to help you achieve your race goals; invitations to social events in and around your community; race weekend VIP amenities, which may include access to an American Cancer Society tent, gear check, private changing areas, facilities, masseuses, cheer teams to inspire you along the course, and more; an exclusive American Cancer Society DetermiNation racing shirt; a personal fundraising website; the opportunity to dedicate your efforts in honor of or in memory of someone affected by cancer and to receive ribbons to wear in support of them; and mentor support and e-newsletters with important race information, inspiration, and training tips. But most important of all, you benefit by making a commitment to help save lives.
Volunteer participants are needed to sign-up and raise funds in marathons, triathlons, cycling races, and other endurance events in Chicago, New York, or Philadelphia. You can also join the DetermiNation Mini-Series and participate wherever you live. Find an event.
