This first-of-its-kind report highlights areas of progress in addressing the challenges of cancer disparities and emphasizes the need for continued research and collaboration to achieve health equity.
May is National Cancer Research Month
The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) initiated and supports National Cancer Research Month to highlight the importance of lifesaving research to the millions of people around the world affected by the collection of devastating diseases we call cancer.
This year, many of the AACR’s more than 48,000 members are contributing their scientific, research, and clinical expertise to the worldwide effort to address the COVID-19 pandemic and to caring for those suffering from the novel coronavirus. Even as we honor all those who are working tirelessly against COVID-19, the AACR continues to support the ongoing research needed to drive further progress against cancer.
Thanks to spectacular advances in cancer research, more than 16.9 million people in the United States and millions more around the world are living with, through, and beyond their diagnoses. Despite that progress, far too many people continue to suffer and die due to these diseases.
The AACR hopes you will take a moment at this extraordinary time to show your strong support of pioneering cancer research that is saving lives every day.
