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 trailblazers in the field who identify as women. The American Cancer Society has funded 50 researchers who have gone on to receive the Nobel Prize, and in 2022, Dr. Carolyn Bertozzi became the first woman ACS has funded to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. 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.

While so much is uncertain during this challenging time, one thing remains a constant…cancer hasn’t stopped, and neither will we. With your help, we can sustain support of the best and brightest cancer research led by women.
Would you like to lead the team or join the team?
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.
