The Cure Cancer Card is available online now!

Shopping Days: Oct. 12-21, 2018

The SA Cancer Council is again teaming up with local businesses to support cancer research and patients in need at UT Health San Antonio MD Anderson Cancer Center. For 10 special days, from Oct. 12-21, shoppers who purchase a $50 Cure Cancer Card – previously called the Partners Shopping Card – will receive a 20 percent discount at more than 250 retail, restaurant, and service locations.

The entire $50 goes directly to the UT Health San Antonio MD Anderson Cancer Center for San Antonio-based research to improve the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of cancer, and to support San Antonio patients with transportation and other critical needs.

The many participating merchants include Julian Gold, The Container Store, Bjorn’s, Tory Burch, TUMI, Williams-Sonoma, Cappy’s Restaurant, Auntie Anne’s, Satel’s, Sunset Ridge Home & Hardware, Hanley-Wood, and so many more. Hair salons and dog salons, jewelers, meat markets, sweet shops, fitness, bicycles, and sportswear are also featured. For the full list of participating businesses, click here.

The Cure Cancer Card is available for purchase online now at SACancerCouncil.org and at participating merchants. The card is valid during the designated Oct. 12-21 period.

“During this special time in October, shoppers in San Antonio, Boerne, and Comfort can help change the story of cancer for today’s patients and for future generations,” said Liz Conklyn, chair of the Cure Cancer Card program. “Together, we can fund breakthrough research to better prevent, diagnose, and treat cancer. With the help of such generous stores, restaurants, salons, etc., you can be part of the fight against cancer.”

Over the past 30 years, the SA Cancer Council’s various fundraising and special events have generated approximately $4.7 million for research and patient assistance at the UT Health San Antonio MD Anderson Cancer Center. Council members also have the opportunity to volunteer through such activities as helping patients and assembling clinical trials kits to free nurses for patient care.
