Helping to raise awareness!!

The American Cancer Society is the leader in the fight to end breast cancer.  With your help and support, we are Helping People Stay Well, Helping People Get Well, Finding Cures, and Fighting Back!

One in every two women newly diagnosed with breast cancer reaches out to the American Cancer Society for help and support. We are in every community providing free information and services when and where people need it. If you need someone to talk with at 3 a.m. (or any other time of the day or night), we’re here. If your friend is losing her hair because of chemo, your mother needs a ride to treatment, or if a loved one needs a place to stay while in treatment away from home, we are the ones who can help.  As we fight to Help People Get Well, your kind donations help support:

Thank you soooooo very much to those who have already made a donation to the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer campaign!  As we will not rest until we have a world without cancer, we need your continued support to FINISH THE FIGHT!

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a powerful and inspiring opportunity to unite as a community to honor breast cancer survivors and raise awareness about steps that can be taken to reduce the risk of getting breast cancer.

In 2013, the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Portland, OR has raised more than $200,000 to help the American Cancer Society fight back against this disease with breast cancer research, information and services, and access to mammograms for women who need them.

The progress being made in the fight against breast cancer is incredible but we won’t stop until we finish this fight - and we can’t do it without you!

Did you know that…?

  • The American Cancer Society invests the most in research of any non-governmental organization to find, prevent, treat and cure breast cancer.
  • Today, 1 in every 2 women newly diagnosed with breast cancer reach out to the American Cancer Society for help and support.
  • The American Cancer Society is in every community providing free information and services and ensuring access to mammograms for women who need them.
  • Since Making Strides began 20 years ago, breast cancer death rates have declined 32 percent.

THANK YOU to everyone who has already supported the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer campaign. There are 2.5 million breast cancer survivors who celebrated another birthday last year because of people like you who made a donation.

There is HOPE!
There is HOPE!

Since the American Cancer Society’s first Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event 20 years ago breast cancer death rates have declined 32 percent, and 8 million walkers across the country have raised more than $460 million. The progress we're making because of Making Strides supporters is nothing short of remarkable, but we still need your help to FINISH THE FIGHT against breast cancer.

We are continuing to raise money to reach our 2013 goal of $200,000 and we need your help more than ever! With your support, we are saving lives by:

Helping People Stay Well

We help people understand what screening tests they need and the steps to take to protect themselves from breast cancer by developing prevention and early detection guidelines that are the industry standard.

Helping People Get Well

One in every two women newly diagnosed with breast cancer reaches out to the American Cancer Society for help and support. We are in every community providing free information and services when and where people need it. If you need someone to talk with at 3 a.m. (or any other time of the day or night), we’re here. If your friend is losing her hair because of chemo, or your mother needs a ride to treatment, or if a loved one needs a place to stay while in treatment away from home, we are the ones who can help.

Finding Cures

The American Cancer Society invests more in research to find, prevent, treat, and cure cancer than any other non-governmental organization. Unlike some organizations that support only breast cancer research, we also fund research to find cures for all types of cancer, because we know that discoveries in one area can often help find answers in another. As a result, we've played a role in nearly every major breast cancer research breakthrough in recent history, including establishing mammography as the standard for breast cancer screening, discovering lifesaving treatments, and better understanding factors that can reduce our risk of getting breast cancer.

Fighting For All Women

We fight for every woman threatened by every cancer in every community. We know that finding breast cancer early, when it is easiest to treat, can mean the difference between life and death. So, we provide screening guidelines, educate the public and health care professionals, and help ensure access to mammograms for women who need them

Thank you to those who have already made a donation to the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer campaign! We can’t finish the fight against breast cancer without your support!
