The American Cancer Society provided direct services to Heartland Division and their Southern Missouri Region.
The ACS provides free wigs and turbans, food supplements, mileage reimbursement, free air transportation, and lodging for cancer patients.
The ultimate mission of the American Cancer Society is to eliminate cancer as a major health problem. Because cancer knows no boundaries, this mission extends around the world. Better prevention, early detection, and advances in treatment have helped some developed nations lower incidence and mortality rates for certain cancers, but in most parts of the world cancer is a growing problem. Cancer killed 6.7 million people around the world in 2002 and this figure is expected to rise to 10.1 million in 2020.
