ACS created Partnering For Life to share essential information and resources about cancer risk, prevention, and early detection. As reported by ACS in Cancer Facts & Figures for African Americans (2019-2021), African Americans have the highest death rate and shortest survival of any racial and ethnic group in the U.S. for most cancers. Partnering For Life is one of several ways ACS is working to advance health equity by addressing cancer disparities for Black people. 

“PFL serves as a critical link in improving cancer outcomes and saving lives from the disease,” Tawana said. “This effort is helping reduce health disparities and creating better qualities of life throughout our Black communities by providing individuals, families, and organizations with relevant cultural assets and the latest cancer resources.”  

Partnering For Life participating organizations include 100 Black Men of America, African Methodist Episcopal Church, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Black Women’s Agenda, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., The Links, Incorporated, National Baptist Convention USA, Inc., National Black Justice Coalition, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.
