Help us KICK START our mission to give back to those and their families facing the battle of cancer.
Acting Out Against Cancer is a nonprofit corporation with a mission to provide support and encouragement for individuals and their families facing the challenges of cancer. We provide Bravery Bags for hospitalized patients and those undergoing treatment.
AOAC wants everyone to know that we've got your back! Bravery Bags are full of comfort and encouragement for both patients and caretakers in their battle against cancer. Whether newly diagnosed or the long standing fighter, these bags are designed to bring extra encouragement and a little reminder that no one is alone.
