OVERVIEW: The American Cancer Society is the nation’s largest voluntary health organization. Their volunteer network -- 2 million strong -- empowers people to make a difference in the fight against cancer. The local Division office in Vero Beach has many volunteer opportunities.
Survival rates are higher than ever, but more than 550,000 Americans still die each year from cancer. That means more dollars are needed to fund promising research projects; to expand information, education, and advocacy efforts; and to increase the level of services provided to cancer patients and their families.
