|COURAGE - American Cancer Society|
|From research to education, prevention to diagnosis, and treatment to recovery, the American Cancer Society provides support to everyone impacted by cancer.
The Society has invested $4.5 billion in cancer research grants since the program began in 1946. Scientists supported by the Society have made great contributions, including proving the effectiveness and safety of mammograms, and dramatically increasing the 5-year survival rate for childhood leukemia to 84 percent.
American Cancer Society programs across Colorado support patients during their cancer journey. The Road To Recovery® program provides rides for patients to and from treatment, and Patient Navigators help guide patients through the health care system. The American Cancer Society’s CHANGE grant program works with community partners and donors to provide lifesaving cancer screenings and information.
The Broncos will continue to work with the American Cancer Society to raise awareness about different cancers, and support cancer survivors through the team’s Fight Like A Bronco campaign. Each year, the Broncos honor more than 100 cancer survivors for a special brunch and Salute to Survivors on-field ceremony at a Broncos home game.
