Recently I lost my friend Robianne to breast cancer. In 2011 I lost my dad to pancreatic cancer. I have also lost many aunts and uncles from cancer. Every day I hear about another person getting diagnosed with cancer.
Do you ever ask yourself how can you fight against cancer? Or are we really making any headway against cancer? Did you know that since 1991 cancer deaths have declined by 25%? Or that every day there are more and better treatment options for cancer? How you ask? From people like you and me who make sure lawmakers know how important cancer research dollars are! Not only are we saving lives, but we are also making sure that people affected by cancer have less long term effects so they have quality of life!
ACS CAN is the nation’s leading cancer advocacy organization; encouraging lawmakers to support policies that lead to the prevention, early detection and treatment of cancer.
I’m excited to have you as part of this special event. Together, we can help saves lives from cancer.
