At LIVESTRONG, we fight for the more than 32.6 million people around the world affected by cancer, right now. We believe you become a survivor the moment you are diagnosed—it’s a mindset, not an outcome. And for survivors in the midst of treatment, it can be a chaotic (and scary) process.
The Need for LIVESTRONG's Work Is Greater Now More Than Ever.
“With cancer survivorship expected to increase more than 35% over the next decade, the need for LIVESTRONG is greater now more than ever. Keep helping us fight the fight, the fight that impacts millions of lives each year. Together, we can and will change the way the world fights cancer.” – Greg Lee, LIVESTRONG President & CEO
