More than 179,000 newly diagnosed patients with cancer are among the Ukrainian people suffering from Russia’s unprovoked aggression. Disruptions to cancer treatment pose a grave risk to their very survival. As a global organization, the American Cancer Society stands in solidarity with all Ukrainians.

The American Cancer Society provides support that includes in-language written resources, and a Volunteer Corps of Clinicians to offer guidance to people with cancer and their families in collaboration with the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center – Jefferson Health.

Use these resources to help you and the ones you love.

Resource and idea-sharing is an invaluable way to support those in need and create greater impact. Submissions are encouraged from health care organizations, educational institutions, health departments/ministries, and other health-focused entities with an interest in cancer.

Please include the following:

  • your organization name
  • contact name
  • phone number
  • email address
  • organization website URL

  • how the organization benefits people impacted by cancer
  • what countries are served

In response to the crisis in Ukraine, we are creating a Clinician Volunteer Corps to work in tandem with American Cancer Society National Cancer Information Center (NCIC) team members to field inquiries from patients, family members, and clinicians in Eastern Europe.

NCIC specialists will field calls and then transfer them to the Clinician Volunteer Corps representatives. The clinician volunteers will address the calls, representing their own expertise and not speaking on behalf of the American Cancer Society or the American Society of Clinical Oncology. If you are an oncologist or oncology nurse who speaks English and/or Central and Eastern European languages, please volunteer today.

Once your form is reviewed, we’ll be in touch with next steps. Thank you for considering this important opportunity to assist cancer patients during this extremely difficult time.

About NCIC
The NCIC fields hundreds of thousands of calls, chats, and social media inquiries from patients, family members, and clinical professionals annually. NCIC specialists answer questions related to cancer including prevention, treatment, and side effect management. They can also connect people with resources to help them navigate their cancer journey.
