Imagine giving a young child affected by cancer the opportunity to sit in and help operate construction equipment such as a backhoe, dozer, or excavator. That is the purpose of Construction vs. Cancer Las Vegas – a unique fundraising event that provides a festive, carnival-like atmosphere for young cancer patients and their families. This unique fundraising event benefits the American Cancer Society in their mission to eliminate cancer as a major health issue through research, patient services and advocacy. While we were looking forward to connecting at the end of February, our leadership team has made the decision to postpone our event until September 18, 2021 to give our community time to heal and to give our volunteers time to plan a safe and fun event for all. Stay tuned for more information and join us as we #RebuildHope in 2021 for a future free from cancer!
The American Cancer Society is working to finish the fight against every cancer in every community. We are the largest private, not-for-profit funder of cancer research in the United States, investing more than $4.6 billion since 1946. Thanks in part to our contributions, more than 1.5 million lives have been saved in the US in the past two decades. Now, that is a reason to celebrate, so please join us.
We hope to see you there!

In 2021, there will be an estimated 1.9 million new cancer cases diagnosed and 608,570 cancer deaths in the United States, but there is hope. For more than 100 years, The American Cancer Society has been leading the fight to end cancer. With your support, we have helped usher in an era where more people survive cancer than ever before. By translating our research findings into action, we've seen a 31% decline in US cancer death rates since 1991. This includes a 2.4% decline from 2017 to 2018 – a new record for the largest one-year drop in the cancer death rate. These are just some of the findings from the annual statistics reported by the American Cancer Society (ACS).
