How Your Donation Helps
The American Childhood Cancer Organization ( ACCO ) was started by a group of parents with children affected by cancer in 1970. They formed an organization to promote research and to support families with children suffering from cancer. In 1970 far fewer children survived a cancer diagnosis, and the American Childhood Cancer Organization has contributed to both helping to improve survivability by lobbying for research for a cure and helping to support families in crisis. Today American Childhood Cancer Organization is one of the largest grassroots organizations committed to improving the lives of children and young adults suffering from cancer. The American Childhood Cancer Organization produces high quality materials on childhood cancer for more than 40 local affiliate chapters across the country. Donate a car to help the American Childhood Cancer Organization continue their mission help children and families affected by cancer.
