Our Mission Focus
Access To Care
Cancer is no easy journey. Unfortunately, the road to survivorship is made more difficult for some as they are faced with additional burdens. Transportation continues to serve as the single largest hurdle in cancer treatment in East Tennessee. However, thanks to the ACS Hope Gala, funds raised through this year's mission moment will benefit the organization's local transportation grant, ensuring access to treatment for all patients needing assistance in the local area. Since its launch in April 2019, the grant has provided nearly 20,000 free rides to treatment, even through the height of the pandemic. It has saved the lives of thousands, allowing patients to overcome transportation setbacks and receive ground-breaking treatments to successfully complete treatment.
For this mission cause and more, we hope you will join us to Save Lives, Celebrate Lives & Lead the Fight for a World Without Cancer.
