About the American Cancer Society
The mission of the American Cancer Society is to achieve a world free from the pain and suffering of cancer. This is a nationwide, community-based voluntary health organization that works to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.
In addition to researching cancer, the American Cancer Society provides emotional and financial support with its information and resources, transportation, lodging, patient navigators, and more.
In Texas, an estimated 124,890 new cancer cases will be diagnosed in 2019 and the ACS works to ensure new and existing patients have better access to lifesaving treatments and necessary support services.
My Experience with the American Cancer Society in Texas
When I was going through chemotherapy for breast cancer, the ACS was extremely helpful. They have quite a lot of free stuff for cancer patients. They gave me some wigs and head coverings after I started losing my hair. I also attended the Look Good, Feel Better 2-hour hands-on workshop. They provided great tips for hair loss, nail care, makeup, clothing, and more. Then, I came home with a large cosmetic bag filled with all kinds of beauty goodies.
Just last year, when I had my oophorectomy at MD Anderson, the ACS provided a discounted hotel room. That saved us quite a bit of money.
Thankfully, I had family and friends that could drive me to my appointments. Although, I know if needed, the ACS also provides transportation services for cancer patients.
