Thank you to all who supported the American Cancer Society in the Capital Region this year.

With your help, we are delivering breakthroughs by investing roughly $150 million dollars in innovative research each year. We support some of the brightest minds and institutions around the country as well as our own world leading research program. We are also providing direction and emotional support when patients and caregivers need it most. Through our support line and website, we are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We welcome thousands of community members through our HopeClub doors each year. With these services available we are empowering people with the information and answers they need.

Additionally, the American Cancer Society is building healthier communities by working to remove barriers to care. We are providing free rides for patients to get to and from treatment, and our Hope Lodges around the country are giving patients and families a place to stay when treatment takes them far from home.

What will it take to beat cancer? All of us. Tell your loved ones: #GetScreened. Many will wait until they have symptoms to visit a doctor. But screening tests are for people without any symptoms.

This racial disparity is largely due to Black women having more advanced staged breast cancer at the time of diagnosis, higher rates of obesity and other health conditions, and certain types of breast cancers that have a less favorable prognosis. These disparities are largely grounded in historical and persistent racism in the U.S., preventing Black women from accessing high-quality cancer treatment and staying on track with treatment compared with white women.
