What We Do
Achieving a world free from the pain and suffering of cancer requires a comprehensive public policy agenda. Our mission and thus our work includes a strong focus on preventing cancer, seeking new cures and treatments and ensuring all Americans have access to the medical care that could save their life. We also support the determination and courage of cancer patients and survivors by working to improve their quality of life both during treatment and after it has ended.
Our enormous record of accomplishment is a result of our volunteers and staff relentlessly advocating at every level of government, from local city councils and county commissions to every state legislature, the U.S. Congress and the federal government.
