American Cancer Society Information

On this page you will find American cancer society information for stomach tumor patients.

The ACS has been campaigning for sufferers for over one century and is the biggest tumor organisation in the USA.

It was initially created by physicians and prominent business men, back in 1913, whose goal was to raise awareness.
