This kind of organization focused mainly their attention in studying the details about cancer, kinds of cancer and how they mutate or how they multiply and damaged the patient's body. The study of this fatal disease is not easy to handle since it starts from other symptoms and other diseases such as Anemia, Tumor, and even viruses or diseases such as Hepatitis B which lead to Liver Cancer. American Cancer Society also gives emotional and psychological help to cancer patients. They help them realize why they should undergo such medical treatment, giving them enough knowledge about the medicines or medical treatment given to them, and support them emotionally why they should experience these sufferings from the chemotherapy or radiotherapy. Giving them these especial attention will help them realized that they are not alone in defeating such fatal disease.
