ACS_50 This symbolic donation makes the perfect gift for any occasion. Share a truly thoughtful gift with that someone special. Be Part of the Next Cancer Research Breakthrough (Symbolic Charitable Donation) In 1995, Mel was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). His prognosis was only about three years unless he got a bone marrow transplant. “I immediately wondered if I’d get to see my five-year-old daughter grow up,” he says. But after three years, no match had been found, so Mel enrolled in a clinical trial for a drug whose fundamental research was supported by the American Cancer Society. Mel says the drug, later named Gleevec, turned his bone marrow back to normal. In fact, a year later he felt healthy enough to run a marathon, and Mel is a proud seventeen-year cancer survivor. Your symbolic donation supports this and other American Cancer Society programs. You could help find the next big cancer breakthrough. You can help fund cancer prevention studies, and other innovative research that could lead to better ways to detect, treat, and cure cancers of all kinds. Will you help? The American Cancer Society is a qualified 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization and donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. No goods or services were provided for this gift. Please consult your tax advisor regarding specific questions about your deductions. Please note: Delivery of the donation certificate will be via the email address on file with your eBay account, where you can download it, print it or email it as a gift.

The American Cancer Society is the largest nongovernmental funder of cancer research in the United States, having spent more than $4 billion since 1946 to find cures. We fund both external research projects through grants and scholarships as well as conduct our own research into cancer epidemiology, surveillance, and health policy. We fund beginning researchers with cutting-edge ideas early in their careers -- 47 of whom have gone on to win the Nobel Prize, the highest accolade in scientific achievement.
