Mission Statement

The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy and service.

Description

Completely owned and operated by the American Cancer Society, net proceeds from the sale of new and gently used merchandise in the 40 Discovery Shops in California fund research, education, advocacy and patient services. These programs and services are in direct relationship to reaching our 2015 goals, which include reducing cancer mortality by 50%, incidence by 25%, and improving the quality of life for all cancer patients.
