The American Cancer Society’s mission is to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer. ACS works to attack cancer from every angle 24/7. Among other initiatives, ACS promotes healthy lifestyles to help prevent cancer, researches cancer and its causes to find more answers and better treatments, fights for lifesaving policy changes and provides everything from emotional support to the latest cancer information for those who have been touched by cancer.
Care+Wear is pleased to announce that a portion of sales from our NBA Team PICC Line Covers will be donated to the American Cancer Society to support their mission. To kickoff this collaboration, the Chicago Bulls team donated a month's supply of custom Peripherally Inserted Central Catheters (PICC) Line Covers to patients at Advocate Health Care and Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. The donated covers featured the Bulls logo.

With a presence in more than 5,000 communities, the American Cancer Society is structured to fight for every life threatened by every cancer in every community. Its regional and local offices are organized to engage communities in the cancer fight, delivering potentially lifesaving programs and services and raising money at the local level. Offices are strategically placed across the country to maximize our efforts, and to be as efficient as possible with the money donated to the Society to fight cancer and save lives. Some of the organization's main areas of focus include:
American Cancer Society has contributed to a 25% decrease in the overall US cancer death rate since 1991, avoiding nearly 2.1 million cancer deaths during that time. We are proud to support the American Cancer Society and continue our mission of improving patient experiences before, during and after treatment through our ACS partnership.
