The American Cancer Society mission is to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer. "The American Cancer Society funds groundbreaking research, educates communities across the country on how to prevent cancer, and help those who are diagnosed with free programs and services in every community including Seneca County. Seneca County is home to the Relay For Life event, which is the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraising event. Money raised supports the life-saving mission of the American Cancer Society. In 18 years, Seneca County has raised over $2 million for the fight against cancer. Relay For Life celebrates cancer survivors of all types of cancer, not just one type. It is a family-friendly event and open to the public."
