Learn More About Palo Alto
Palo Alto is located in Santa Clara County and is named after a 1,000-year-old coastal redwood tree. This city is a leader in cutting-edge technological development and is home to many world-class companies. Several local cancer treatment centers call this home, including Stanford Women’s Cancer Center on Blake Wilbur Dr., Cancer Care Clinic: Palo Alto Center: Palo Alto Medical Foundation on El Camino Real and Stanford Cancer Center Palo Alto on Blake Wilbur Dr.
Fortunately, according to the American Cancer Society, the mortality rate for cancer has dropped since the 1990s. This is due to the advancement of treatment and early detection methods.

In 2018, about 140 Black Americans per 100,000 died of cancer in Santa Clara County, CA, compared to 130 white individuals per 100,000.
Latest U.S. Breast Cancer Estimates
Next to skin cancer, the most common type of diagnosed cancer among American women is breast cancer. Based on the American Cancer Society’s latest estimates for breast cancer in the United States for 2018, about 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women this year while about 63,960 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer (called carcinoma in situ or CIS) will also be diagnosed.
The Society’s latest report states that about 40,920 American women will die from breast cancer this year.
It notes that the average risk of a woman in the United States developing breast cancer sometime in her life is about 12 percent, which means that there is a one in eight chance she will develop breast cancer.
It points out that there are currently more than 3.1 million breast cancer survivors in the United States, including women still being treated and those who have completed treatment.
How You Can Join the Fight against Breast Cancer
The numbers cited clearly show the need for more effective ways to confront the breast cancer menace. You can help meet this great challenge by taking part in our Palo Alto, California vehicle donations program. We have come up with a quick and easy three-step car donation process for the convenience of our donors:
First, fill out our online donation form or call us at 866-540-5069.
Let us know that you want to donate your car. We’d need your personal contact details, your vehicle’s year, make, model, mileage, availability of a title and overall running condition as well.
Second, allow us to pick up your vehicle for free and at your preferred time and date.
A local professional towing company will tow your car, and we’ll be the one to pay for this. Your presence is not required on the day of pickup. Before we leave, we will give you a donation receipt that will free you from all liabilities on the car, which means you can now cancel its registration and insurance coverage.
Third, receive your tax-deductible receipt by mail.
Within days after we sell your vehicle at auction, we’ll send you your 100 percent tax-deductible sale receipt, indicating your donated vehicle’s final selling price. This will serve as the basis of your tax deduction claim when you file your itemized federal tax return.
