Why is being an ACS CAN volunteer important to you?

I can help inform legislators’ about policies that impact cancer patients and caregivers. I can also impact their decision to support legislation that ACSCAN is advocating for.

Why are you a cancer advocate?

I am a cancer survivor and I feel that impacting legislation on the state and federal level is imperative to achieving our mission goals.

Why should others in your community get involved in ACS CAN?

There is power in numbers! The more advocates we recruit and train, the more impact we can have on legislation.
