It’s barely a week into the new year, yet 2020 is already shaping up to be a noteworthy year for public health, public policy and especially for our fight against cancer.
The fight to stop the tobacco industry’s dangerous hold on our country’s health is ever-changing and demands strong, comprehensive public policy change.
Even as Breast Cancer Awareness Month comes to a close, ACS CAN will keep working year-round, across the country and with both state and federal lawmakers, to advance the public policies we know will reduce the burden of breast cancer.
Our annual Lights of Hope ceremony is one of the most visually powerful events I have ever experienced. This year, volunteers brought more than 40,000 Lights of Hope with them to D.C. from every corner of the country.
I can’t think of a more energizing way to kick off ACS CAN’s lobby day than with a rally hosted by NCAA Division 1 basketball coaches! This morning three current and former NCAA coaches rallied on hundreds of volunteers as they prepared to make their voices heard on Capitol Hill.
