About Us

The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service. Locally in Fairfield County we work closely with patients, volunteers, health systems and the community to educate about cancer prevention and early detection, and to ensure cancer patients have the resources they need. We also host fundraising events throughout the year to fund these programs and services.
