Frequently Asked Questions

What is ResearcHERS?
ResearcHERS is a program of the American Cancer Society (ACS) that structures an opportunity for women to use their influence to fund women-led cancer research. As a fundraising movement that empowers women to mobilize their communities and networks to sustain and promote women leading the field in cancer research, the ResearcHERS campaign is supporting some of the most innovative women-led cancer research projects in the country. With over 230 projects currently, ResearcHERS hopes to fund the American Cancer Society’s first female Nobel Prize winning researcher!
Why is funding cancer research so important? 
Funding for cancer research has led to significant advances in prevention, detection, diagnosis, treatment, and patient quality of life, but until there is a cure—funding ongoing studies and research is critical. Funding provides cancer researchers with the resources needed to sustain promising studies that have the potential to make further discoveries and medical breakthroughs.
