The American Childhood Cancer Organization (ACCO) was founded in 1970 by parents of children and adolescents diagnosed with cancer. As the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots organization dedicated to childhood cancer, ACCO is committed to shaping policy, supporting research, raising awareness, and providing free educational resources and programs to kids with cancer, survivors, and their families. ACCO has helped support more than half a million families over the past 50 years and is determined to make childhood cancer a national health priority because kids can’t fight cancer alone®.
