We fight to improve the lives of people affected by cancer.
We consider anyone affected by cancer—patients, caregivers and loved ones—a survivor at the moment of diagnosis and through every stage of the cancer journey. We’re letting survivors know they’re not alone. There are 28 million people living with cancer around the world, and we’re standing with them in the fight against cancer. We’re helping survivors find their voice and take control of their fight.

Cancer accounts for nearly eight million deaths worldwide each year, killing more people than HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined. LIVESTRONG is calling on world leaders to make cancer a global priority. We believe all cancer survivors have the right to receive the treatment, services and support they need.

My son Oren was diagnosed with cancer and passed away on November 5th. It is not easy to continue dealing with this subject on a daily basis, after you have lost your loved ones, but I am committed to carrying the torch that my son passed on to me.
In 2007, LIVESTRONG executed a global cancer research study intended to give people affected by cancer a chance to share their cancer experiences and their perspectives on the cancer problem—a problem that is too often shrouded by stigma and silence. Hear from everyday people and medical professionals in India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, and South Africa regarding how is cancer perceived and represented around the world.
