Mission Statement The American Cancer Society’s mission is to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.
Background Statement

The American Cancer Society, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation governed by a single Board of Directors that is responsible for setting policy, establishing long-term goals, monitoring general operations, and approving the organizational outcomes and allocation of resources. The Board is composed entirely of volunteers from the medical and lay communities. The Society’s structure includes a global headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, as well as regional and local offices throughout the country supporting 6 geographic regions with regional offices, and more than 300 local offices in those regions. The global headquarters is responsible for overall strategic planning; corporate support services such as human resources, financial management, IT, etc.; development and implementation of global and nationwide endeavors such as our groundbreaking research program, our global program, and 24-hour call center; and providing technical support and materials to regional and local offices for local delivery. With a presence in more than 5,000 communities, the American Cancer Society is structured to fight for every life threatened by every cancer in every community. Our regional and local offices are organized to engage communities in the cancer fight, delivering potentially lifesaving programs and services and raising money at the local level. Offices are strategically placed across the country to maximize our efforts, and to be as efficient as possible with the money donated to the Society to fight cancer and save lives.

LOCAL OFFICES In Missouri, we have (5) offices located in Cape Girardeau, Jefferson City, Kansas City, Springfield, St Louis and in Kansas, we have (2) offices located in Wichita and Topeka organized to deliver cancer prevention, early detection, and patient services programs at the community level.

VOLUNTEERS More than two million volunteers carry out the Society's mission of eliminating cancer and improving quality of life for those individuals facing the disease. These dedicated volunteers donate their time and talents to further cancer research; educate the public about early detection and prevention; advocate for responsible cancer legislation in the local, state, and federal governments; and serve cancer patients and their families as they manage their cancer experience.
Impact Statement Raise awareness to thousands in Kansas and Missouri about the importance of cancer prevention, early detection, through media outreach, community events, collaboration and speaking engagement.
Needs Statement

The American Cancer Society is working to increase survivor rates and cancer patient quality of life. To accomplish our goal, we recruit and train community volunteers to:

  • Drive cancer patients to treatment through Road to Recovery Program.
  • Offer emotional support individually and in groups through our Patient Service Center, LGFB & Reach to Recovery program.
  • Support at our Hope Lodge,
  • Implement fund raising events.
 
Our plan of work this year focuses on providing the resources. Staff at the Patient Services Center are available 24/7 to work with patients, families, and caregivers to provide support services, assistance in navigating healthcare systems, and identifying the services and resources that will improve their quality of life. The center compliments the local office, the Society's website, and National Cancer Information Service. An investment of $2 million would allow us to fully implement the Division Patient Services Center for one year.

The most critical needs are additional lodging resources.

  • An investment of $475,000 would fund the operations of the Hope Lodge for one year.
  • An investment of $25,000 would provide lodging for 15 patients while undergoing treatment.
  • An investment of $10,000 will allow the Director to apply funds to areas with critical needs.

Programs
Description The devastating words "you have cancer" instantly throw families into crisis. Patients face a maze of information, tests, doctor visits, and procedures as they fight for life. Appointments at multiple institutions and sorting through mountains of information can be physically, emotionally, and financially overwhelming. The American Cancer Society is there with cancer patients every step of the way. Patient navigators helped guide patients through the health care system.Diagnosis is just the beginning of the journey. Navigating the cancer experience can be incredibly complex, and many patients experience obstacles along the way. We know that patients who follow through with recommended treatment plans are more likely to survive - and that many factors can prevent patients from attending and completing treatment. The Society provides patients and caregivers with the information, resources, and support they need to continue the journey to health.

We implement a diversified fund raising plan that includes events and major gifts (individual, corporate, and foundation) to ensure the resources are available to provide access to care and quality of life services to cancer patients and their families. Volunteers are the key to developing and maintaining the events to raise money for the American Cancer Society.
