The American Cancer Society would like to thank the generous companies that support our efforts to fight breast cancer and save lives through the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Honorary Alliance.

The Making Strides Honorary Alliance is a mutually beneficial cause-marketing relationship with the American Cancer Society that combines the delivery of critical breast health messages to help people stay well and reduce their risk or find cancer early with a consumer campaign to increase awareness and funds to fight breast cancer.

Working with the nation’s largest voluntary public health organization with the single most universally recognized cancer-fighting brand identity overall can be very rewarding for a company, its employees, and its consumers. The American Cancer Society is delighted to align with companies that are dedicated to saving lives by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back against cancer.

If your company would like to learn more about becoming a strategic Honorary Alliance member with the American Cancer Society, please contact us at: acscausemarketing@cancer.org.

Join our effort to reach a day when no one has to hear the words, "You have breast cancer." Together with the American Cancer Society, you can save lives and create a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays.
