Take Action

Childhood cancer remains the number one cause of death by disease in the U.S. and around the world. In spite of that alarming statistic, 29 state cancer plans do not have any mention of childhood cancer. ACCO works with state governments to raise awareness, change policy, add childhood cancer language to state cancer plans, as well as work towards reducing the disparity in adult and pediatric state cancer research appropriations. Join us as we lead at the state and federal level. Take action today.

Did you know that we host monthly advocacy trainings?

ACCO holds monthly advocacy trainings to share our expertise as we work towards increased childhood cancer research funding. We’re seeking advocates across the nation to help us in the fight! Join now by clicking here.

Ways YOU Can Help

Donate to ACCO. We are the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots organization dedicated to childhood cancer. We are leading the nation in raising state-level childhood cancer research appropriations, as we continue to shape policy, raise awareness, and offer free educational resources to children with cancer, survivors, and their families. With your support, we can continue to make childhood cancer a national child health priority.

Childhood cancer remains the number one cause of death by disease in the U.S. and around the world. In the past year, through ACCO’s “What About KidsTM” program, ACCO trained local advocates and worked with state legislators to appropriate more than $25 million new dollars for childhood cancer research! You can join ACCO as we lead the way in securing state childhood cancer research appropriations as well as continue our advocacy work at the federal level. Take action today.
