Families, caregivers, or medical staff caring for children diagnosed with cancer.
The American Childhood Cancer Organization (ACCO) is the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots non-profit dedicated to childhood cancer. ACCO is dedicated to making childhood cancer a national health priority through shaping policy, supporting research, raising awareness, and providing educational resources and innovative programs to children with cancer, survivors, and their families.
ACCO leads the nation in raising state-level childhood cancer research appropriations, as they continue to shape policy, raise awareness, and offer free educational resources to children with cancer, survivors, and their families.
In the past year, through Amazon's support of ACCO's "What About Kids™" program, ACCO trained local advocates and worked with state legislators to appropriate more than $25 million new dollars for childhood cancer research in three states. In the next year, ACCO will be expanding that success to eight additional states.
Childhood cancer remains the number one cause of death by disease in the U.S. and around the world, and the American Childhood Cancer Organization is recognized nationally and internationally for making cancer a child health priority.
