About the Campaign
There is a clear crisis in cancer prevention awareness. More Americans attribute stress and other unproven factors leading to cancer than recognize that alcohol, processed meat and other lifestyle habits have clear links to cancer risk. And only one in two Americans know that obesity is a cause of cancer.
To mark National Cancer Prevention Month in February, every year the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) leads a campaign to spotlight how individuals can reduce their cancer risk with lifestyle changes. The campaign, CANCER PREVENTION: TOGETHER WE CAN, is dedicated to presenting evidence-based user-friendly and interactive tools that educate and empower.
AICR is thankful for the numerous partner organizations and associations that team up with us to spread the powerful message of prevention.
Our Vision: We want to live in a world where no one develops a preventable cancer.
Our Mission: The American Institute for Cancer Research champions the latest and most authoritative scientific research from around the world on cancer prevention and survival through diet, weight and physical activity, so that we can help people make informed lifestyle choices to reduce their cancer risk.
We have contributed more than $107 million for innovative research conducted at universities, hospitals and research centers.
