ResearcHERS: Women Fighting Cancer
ResearcHERS empowers women to fundraise in support of women-led cancer research, but it's more than just a fundraising campaign. ResearcHERS is a movement. A sisterhood of purpose determined to sustain women-led cancer research and recognize the female trailblazers in the field. While the American Cancer Society has funded 49 researchers who have gone on to receive the Nobel Prize, none of them has been a woman...yet. Join the ResearcHERS movement and help us fuel the future of women-led cancer research.
Across the nation, the ResearcHERS campaign raises money to fuel the work of some of the most innovative women-led cancer research. With support from programs like ResearcHERS, the American Cancer Society is conducting and funding ground-breaking research that could help save lives from all types of cancer.

To raise the funds that fuel women-led cancer research, we look to influential women across the country - community and business leaders ready to fight for a world without cancer. We call these leaders our Ambassadors, and we can never have too many. If you're passionate about fighting cancer and want to help elevate women in the field of cancer research, nominate yourself today. Know someone else who fits the bill? Nominate them as an Ambassador. And help us save even more lives from cancer.

This isn’t what I wanted.
Cancer has touched all of us in some way. And we want to stop this disease in its tracks. We'll spend the next few weeks fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Then, on the day of the event, we'll honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others.
Together, we'll be a part of making a difference in this important cause.
