Emotional Support

Appearance-related Side Effects

Look Good Feel Better® workshops help women with cancer learn simple hair and skin care techniques to manage the appearance-related side effects of treatment. The program is a collaboration of the American Cancer Society, the Personal Care Products Council Foundation, and the Professional Beauty Association.

Breast Cancer Support

The American Cancer Society Reach To Recovery® program matches trained volunteer breast cancer survivors to people facing or living with breast cancer. Our volunteers give cancer patients and their family members the opportunity to ask questions, talk about their fears and concerns, and express their feelings.

Online Support

Relay For Life

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life movement fights for a cancer-free world. Join more than four million participants in more than 5,000 communities nationwide to finish the fight against cancer.

At 12 community Relay For Life events in Vermont, teams of registered participants camp out at a park, school, or fairground, and walk around a track or path - sometimes overnight - to symbolize the battle waged around the clock by those facing cancer. Thoughtful ceremonies, including the Luminaria Ceremony, are held throughout the duration of the event to honor cancer survivors and caregivers, remember loved ones lost to the disease, and fight back against cancer.

Join the Relay For Life movement and finish the fight against cancer! Your support as a participant or event volunteer enables the American Cancer Society to save lives. Visit Relayforlife.org to find an event near you!

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks are the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, uniting nearly 300 communities with a shared determination to finish the fight against breast cancer. Passionate walk participants raise critical funds that enable the American Cancer Society to fund groundbreaking breast cancer research; provide free, comprehensive information and support to those touched by breast cancer; and help people take steps to reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it is most treatable.
