American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network

Cancer Advocate,

If you listen closely, you’ll hear it.

It’s the sound of gratitude from millions of cancer patients, survivors and caregivers. It’s also me saying a big “thank you” to you.

I know I’ve sent you a lot of emails this past week, and I’m proud to say that our work together paid off.

As our policy experts pour through the hundreds of pages of the COVID-19 stimulus packages, we’re seeing many very important victories for people impacted by cancer. These include:
  • Funding for the Community Health Centers that serve more than 29 million Americans in over 12,000 rural and urban communities across the nation.

  • Up to 2 weeks of paid family medical leave so people can take care of loved ones impacted by coronavirus or care for children whose schools have closed.

  • Guaranteed coverage with no cost-sharing for COVID-19 testing and treatment, so even those who are uninsured or underinsured can get the care they need.

  • Tax relief for charitable organizations like the American Cancer Society so they can remain on the frontlines serving cancer patients during and long after this health crisis.
For cancer patients, these provisions you helped pass could be the difference between life and death. It could mean getting that needed test or making it to that crucial cancer treatment. One thing I know for sure is that it will mean saving more lives.

These are challenging times – for ourselves, our families and our nation. Through it all, your American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network will never stop fighting for people impacted by cancer.

If you can afford a small donation, it would go a long way toward helping us keep up this fight – through this crisis and its aftermath. It will also help ensure cancer patients always have a loud, powerful voice in Congress.

Thank you for all that you did and I know you will continue to do in the fight against cancer.

Brian Rubenstein
Senior Director
