The American Association of Cancer Research (AACR) is well-aware of the prevalence of cancer in the community at large today and works tirelessly to accelerate progress in the conquest of cancer – and we need your help. We invite you and your company to unite for cancer research. This May, help us in supporting a global awareness campaign for National Cancer Research Month. You can partner with the AACR during May—and beyond—to defeat cancer through a variety of avenues.

Headquartered right here in Philadelphia, the AACR is the first and largest scientific organization in the world focused on every aspect of high-quality, innovative cancer research.  Thanks to spectacular advances made by cancer research, more than 15.5 million people in the United States and millions more worldwide are cancer survivors who are living beyond their disease.

By uniting with the AACR, you can tap into your company’s and community’s culture that aligns with the AACR mission to prevent and cure all cancers. Support National Cancer Research Month by providing articles and resources to educate your employees about the latest findings in cancer research. Drive employee engagement by hosting a lunch and learn with a cancer researcher. Get social by sharing posts from the National Cancer Research Month Facebook page.

We can also help you come up with a unique promotion that speaks to your customers.

Unite with many other organizations throughout the Philadelphia region for cancer research. Together, we can defeat cancer.

To learn more about these opportunities or to request additional information, please contact Ashley Ruggieri at and visit the Unite for Cancer Research website.
