New version helps Spanish speakers navigate the cancer journey with confidence.
The ACS CARES app is now available in Spanish! Providing the ACS CARES app in Spanish is just one of the many ways ACS is committed to expanding multi-cultural engagement in our patient support programs.
Last year, with support from the Deloitte Health Equity Institute, including a $1 million dollar commitment over two years, the American Cancer Society nationally launched ACS CARES (Community Access to Resources, Education, and Support), which equips those facing cancer with curated content, programs, and services to fit their specific cancer journey.
The ACS CARES mobile app provides patients and caregivers an easy, free way to:
- Access personalized, quality cancer-related information that updates as they age, the situation changes, or new information becomes available.
- Connect one-on-one with trained community volunteers who share the same cancer experiences and background including diagnosis, location, military status, race, and ethnicity.
- Find reliable information on addressing important topics such as emotional health, finances, transportation, and dependent support.
- Speak directly with American Cancer Society cancer information specialists when they have questions, day or night, 365 days a year.
You can get the app on Google Play or download it on the Apple Store. Note: there is not a separate Spanish app to download. For those with Spanish selected as their internal phone settings language, the ACS CARES app will be displayed in Spanish upon downloading.
