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.
The AACR invites you to join us in support of this global awareness campaign highlighting the importance of cancer research. Thanks to spectacular advances made by cancer research, more than 18 million people in the United States and millions more worldwide are cancer survivors who are living with, through, and beyond their disease.
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.
