The Hong Kong Anti-Cancer Society

The HKACS was established in 1963, a non-profit making organisation. It has always been at the forefront of fighting against cancer and is committed to serving the people of Hong Kong. In addition to providing quality medical services to cancer patients, we also organise various activities to raise awareness of cancer, conduct cancer education, support cancer research, establish guidelines for cancer detention and prevention, and provide direct financial support for cancer patients in need. Our dedicated volunteers also conduct regular home visits and organise recreational activities with love and care.
