In October, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event took place in our nation's capital. During the event, volunteers armed with a clipboard, and a pen collected hundreds of petitions to urge Congress to increasae funding live-saving cancer research.
Teaming up to make strides against breast cancer
Congress holds the purse strings to cancer research funding. ACS CAN and the American Cancer Society'Making Strides Against Breast Cancer are teaming up to urge Congress to put the ‘Power of the Purse’ behind research. Thank you to Linda Cookinghom, an ACS CAN Ambassador for speaking at the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Baltimore Event Kickoff and sharing why it's important to join ACS CAN in the fight against cancer.
By joining ACS CAN, you are becoming part of a movement to help influence lawmakers to maintain funding levels for cancer research. This research could lead to improved screenings, treatments, and care for breast cancer patients.
