Founded in New York in 1913, the American Society for the Control of Cancer focused on simply raising awareness about cancer and help decrease the negative stigma that surrounded a cancer diagnosis. After WWII, the organization reorganized to form the American Cancer Society and now strives to provide educational resources, support, and access to medical care to those suffering from any form of cancer. Their work in cancer research, including lung cancer associated with smoking, has helped reduce the rate of death from cancer in the United States.
