APA style requires that you include citations that are embedded within the original material that you are quoting. The work cited in the paper of the author you are quoting is not included in your reference list since you have not read it yourself.

Here's the APA example of how your text would read if you were quoting from Miller, who was citing the American Cancer Society in his work:

"In the United States, the American Cancer Society (2007) estimated that about 1 million cases of NMSC and 59,940 cases of melanoma would be diagnosed in 2007, with melanoma resulting in 8,110 deaths" (Miller et al., 2009, p. 209).
