Advocacy has been at the heart of the American Childhood Cancer Organization’s mission since the organization began in 1970. We need your help to continue advocating for kids with cancer. Join us on a state, federal or global level.
ACCO proudly serves as the largest grassroots voice for children affected by cancer and the only U.S. member of Childhood Cancer International. We are dedicated to raising awareness and shaping policy at the local, state, and federal levels to make childhood cancer a health priority.
Childhood cancer affects children and families without regard to political affiliation, so we don’t choose sides in politics either. We simply believe all children deserve access to the latest scientific research, life-saving medical treatment and shouldn’t also suffer financial hardship while their child is fighting.
