Cancer happens to a person, not a number. Each person has her journey, his experience, her feelings, his attitude. Facing that journey is precisely why we have developed programs to help the whole person heal and to help communities support people affected by cancer.
Cancer presents everyday challenges for survivors and their families. That’s why we offer solutions like emotional support, fertility preservation, clinical trial matching, guidance on treatment options and insurance and financial assistance—all free of charge.
The Community Impact Project offers funding to organizations to recreate programs that have demonstrated success in supporting people affected by cancer within one city, state or region of the United States. Recreating programs that are proven to be effective allows us to eliminate the cost of developing new programs and allows for more immediate implementation to help cancer survivors and their families today.
With one in two men and one in three women in the U.S. facing a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime, children in classrooms everywhere are likely to be dealing with cancer right now. LIVESTRONG at School offers online lessons for grades K–12 to help students learn about cancer in a way that is age-appropriate, inspiring and empowering. In 2012, we helped more than 184,000 students and teachers.
Since our inception, we have raised more than $500 million dollars for the fight against cancer, and those funds have directly supported our programs and services for survivors like one-on-one support, the Community Impact Project and LIVESTRONG at School, among many others.
We saved our 15,000 clients nearly $6,000,000 in personal costs by negotiating discounts, maximizing available medication programs and overturning denials from insurance companies.
We invested $1.4 million to bring proven cancer support programs to 90 sites across the U.S.
We helped more than 184,000 students and teachers in 2012 through our LIVESTRONG at School curriculum.
