The American Childhood Cancer Organization (ACCO) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides support, information, and advocacy to children with cancer, their families, adult survivors of childhood cancer, and the professionals who care for them. Those dealing with childhood cancer and its effects, at any stage, are welcome as members. ACCOs major services include an information clearinghouse; publications, including four newsletters as well as books and reprints; and a network of support groups of childhood-cancer families, located in every state. Assistance is provided in starting and maintaining a group. Services that local groups provide often include camps, speakers, conferences, transportation, and one-to-one visitations. The foundation does not provide direct financial assistance but has a financial aid list available. ACCO is also a registered lobbyist and advocates on behalf of pediatric cancer patients and families.
