This project will save us $1,366 , allowing us to focus our resources and donor dollars on our mission to lead the fight for a world without cancer.

What We Need

  • Transcript(s) for up to 5 hours of audio/video recordings

How This Will Help

The American Cancer Society is currently working on a series of Nutrition and Physical Activity related educational and personal videos to help cancer patients and caregivers cope with treatment related side effects through healthy eating and exercise. We have 2 video interviews that we need transcribed of a husband and wife discussing their cancer journey. This project will help increase awareness of the American Cancer Society's mission to attack cancer from EVERY angle. The videos are a total of 1 1/2 hours and have time code on the screen to help.

What We Have In Place

We currently have the videos on vimeo with time code which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have the video available in other formats and the ability to provide any other information you need.

Our Mission

The American Cancer Society’s mission is to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.

What We Do

The American Cancer Society is a nationwide, community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem. Our Global Headquarters are located in Atlanta, Georgia, and we have regional and local offices throughout the country to ensure we have a presence in every community. While most people know us for our research, we do so much more. We attack cancer from every angle. We promote healthy lifestyles to help you prevent cancer. We research cancer and its causes to find more answers and better treatments. We fight for lifesaving policy changes. We provide everything from emotional support to the latest cancer information for those who have been touched by cancer. And we do it all 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
