  • Join us at the American Cancer Society Derby Dash on Friday, May 3rd for a one-of-a-kind cocktail party, featuring big hats, bow ties, great food, live horse racing, a spectacular auction, and much more. With your support, the American Cancer Society saves lives by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back against cancer.

    The American Cancer Society is working to finish the fight against every cancer in every community. We are the largest private, not-for-profit funder of cancer research in the United States, and have invested nearly $50 million in Western New York since 1946.

    This year, we are proud to announce that the American Cancer Society Derby Dash will specifically fund our Transportation Assistance Program in Erie County. Every day, thousands of cancer patients need rides to and from their treatments. Even the best treatment can’t work if a cancer patient can’t get there. This program helps patients overcome transportation as a barrier to access to care by providing rides to and from treatment.

By translating our research findings into action, we’ve seen a 20% decline in US cancer death rates since the early 1990s.
