Welcome to ACCO
WHO WE ARE
Founded in 1970 by a dedicated group of parents of children with cancer, the American Childhood Cancer Organization (ACCO) is the oldest and largest grassroots childhood cancer organization in the U.S. and only U.S. member of Childhood Cancer International. We are dedicated to making childhood cancer a national health priority through shaping policy, supporting research, raising awareness, and providing educational resources and innovative programs to children with cancer, survivors, and their families.
We are a community of families, survivors, and friends who have been affected by childhood and adolescent cancer. We offer our community support, information, advocacy. We are their voice.
We believe childhood and adolescent cancer must be designated a child health priority.
