We fight to improve the lives of people affected by cancer.

At the LIVESTRONG Foundation, our mission is to inspire and empower people affected by cancer.

We consider anyone affected by cancer—patients, caregivers and loved ones—a survivor at the moment of diagnosis and through every stage of the cancer journey. We’re letting survivors know they’re not alone. There are 28 million people living with cancer around the world, and we’re standing with them in the fight against cancer. We’re helping survivors find their voice and take control of their fight.

In 2010, cancer became the leading cause of death worldwide.

Cancer accounts for nearly eight million deaths worldwide each year, killing more people than HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined. LIVESTRONG is calling on world leaders to make cancer a global priority. We believe all cancer survivors have the right to receive the treatment, services and support they need.
