ABOUT THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY
The American Cancer Society's Discovery Shops were founded by a volunteer fifty years ago, with the mission to create a thrift store that sold only the best gently used clothing, furniture, and collectibles with net proceeds benefitting the ACS. To date, the 40+ Discovery Shops across California have raised over $308,000,000 to benefit the American Cancer Society.
The American Cancer Society is fighting breast cancer by supporting women affected by the disease as well as working tirelessly to find cures. The organization has developed screening guidelines and helps provide mammograms in order to find breast cancer early, when it is easiest to treat. The Society also provides 24/7 access to information and resources for individuals facing breast cancer - and all cancers - via our toll-free number 1-800-227-2345 or cancer.org. Additionally, the ACS invests more in research to find, prevent, treat, and cure cancer than any other non-governmental organization.
