Corporate Champions who partner with the American Institute for Cancer Research stand at the forefront of the fight against cancer

The Continuous Update Project (CUP) is an ongoing program that analyzes global research on how diet, nutrition and physical activity affect cancer risk and survival.

A major milestone in cancer research, the Third Expert Report analyzes and synthesizes the evidence gathered in CUP reports and serves as a vital resource for anyone interested in preventing cancer.

AICR has pushed research to new heights, and has helped thousands of communities better understand the intersection of lifestyle, nutrition, and cancer.

Read real-life accounts of how AICR is changing lives through cancer prevention and survivorship.

We bring a detailed policy framework to our advocacy efforts, and provide lawmakers with the scientific evidence they need to achieve our objectives.

AICR champions research that increases understanding of the relationship between nutrition, lifestyle, and cancer.

AICR’s resources can help you navigate questions about nutrition and lifestyle, and empower you to advocate for your health.

AICR is committed to putting what we know about cancer prevention into action. To help you live healthier, we’ve taken the latest research and made 10 Recommendations for Cancer Prevention.

Why Shred for Cancer?

“When one of our franchisees was stricken with an inoperable brain tumor and we saw the amazing fight he had to beat this disease (he continues to fight to this day), we knew that we had to find an organization just as committed as David was to fighting this disease. For us at proshred we wanted an organization that had the same beliefs we had – education, prevention, and knowledge are the best ways to stop this disease, and AICR lives this every day, their research is aimed at education and prevention. We at PROSHRED® know that we can help make a difference, and will do everything we can to help do that.”

The suggested donation is $5 per box, 100% of the proceeds will be donated to AICR’s research and education programs. Individuals will receive goodie bags with cancer prevention recipes and other materials.
