The American Cancer Society is an organization that is dedicated to eliminating cancer. The American Cancer Society has all sorts of informative links and information that can help you understand and cope when someone you care about has been diagnosed with cancer. If it was my friend or family member I would tell them about the website it has many ways to learn about the different forms of cancer along with the risk factors and treatment plans for the cancer you are dealing with. The website also includes information on how to speak to someone in person and get information that you are looking for along with local group setting you can attend to get education on cancer (American Cancer Society, 2016).

Statistics show that an estimated 1.5 million new cancer cases diagnosed each year over the next decade. Some of the factors that contribute to the yearly incidence and mortality rates of various cancers in Americans include: obesity, smoking, alcohol, physical inactivity, lack of education, and lack of health care coverage. “Cancer was responsible for nearly one in four deaths in the United States in 2011, making it the second leading cause of death overall. It is already the leading cause of death among adults aged 40 to 79, and is expected to overtake heart disease as the leading cause of death among all Americans within the next several years. “The change may be inevitable, but we can still lessen cancer’s deadly impact by making sure as many Americans as possible have access to the best tools to prevent, detect, and treat cancer” (Simon, 2014).

One area of research that is funded by the American Cancer Society is Childhood cancer. This is done by using society’s full time researchers and external grantees to monitor and engage in new treatments, improvement of existing treatments, and addressing the side effects they can result from having childhood cancer. The research is broken down into the different kinds of cancer that children, this is also done to help prevent the long term suffering of the treatment effects that include things like hearing loss, heart disease, secondary cancers, and some learning disabilities. Palliative care is something that is important for the researchers to continue to gather information and continue their working together with the National Palliative Care Research Center (American Cancer Society, 2016).
