The American Cancer Society  Each day, we’re #attackingcancer from every angle. Learn how:

“I feel like I’ve said a lot about my cancer journey and even now, I still have more things to say-even in remission, cancer never leaves…The fact that I’m alive right now is kind of incredible. Cherish every moment and live your life to the fullest. Wear your scars proudly.” ( 📷: @_jessi_jess)

A big #thankyou to our nearly 1.5 million volunteers including @fernando_decillis , a commercial photographer, who offered his skills through Catchafire as his way of giving back. It’s volunteers like him who help us further our mission to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer. (📷: @fernando_decillis )

Cancer affects everyone differently and that is why it’s so important to have a great support system. Don’t forget to utilize the variety of resources the #AmericanCancerSociety has to offer for those affected by #cancer. 📷: @willywoophotography

“I am so proud of this beautiful woman who fought, thrived and conquered cancer. I met @Trishacts through the @americancancersociety Road To Recovery program. On our way to Trisha’s treatments, I would talk non-stop and she would always have a BIG smile regardless of the pain and discomfort she felt fighting cancer. Today she is healthy, happy and living her passion every day and I feel blessed to know her.” – Manna, Road To Recovery volunteer (📷: @mannadabholkar)

In honor of #ColorectalCancer Awareness Month, we’d like to take a moment to highlight Cari Jane Kasowski and her father, who recently finished his last round of chemo. Getting screened starting at age 50 helps to find #colorectalcancer at an early, more treatable phase. (📷:@mrskasowski)

Thank you @EmpireStateBldg for highlighting the importance of #WorldCancerDay and the global impact that #cancer has on us all.

Even during the holidays, #HopeLodge provides a home away from home for patients and their caregivers. @nhl @stlouisblues player Alexander Steen helps brighten a patient’s day by spreading smiles and sharing a meal.

“I feel that my advocacy efforts save coverage for many other people out there.” Advocates like Vanessa, who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at 23, impact the future of cancer legislation today. Your donations help that mission, too. Donate today—link in bio. #AttackingCancer
