Every year The American Cancer Society receives over 1800 research grant applications from all over the country. Over 350 of the most promising research applications are chosen to be worthy of funding. Only about 230 of the grants are actually funded by ACS because they run out of money, leaving approximately 120 promising researchers without funding. 100% of our donations will go to fund one of those researchers (or more depending on how much money we raise) and it will be a researcher right here in Texas! So even though our donations go to The American Cancer Society, 100% will be used for cancer research that might not have happened!
