I want to join the fight to save more lives from cancer. Even in a pandemic, cancer doesn't stop. An estimated 1.8 million people in the U.S. were diagnosed with cancer in 2020. Every major breakthrough in the fight against cancer has involved federal research funding, and we need more breakthroughs.

As Congress negotiates a final budget for the coming year, it's critical that they make fighting cancer a top priority.

Ask Congress to provide funding to restart cancer clinical trials that were halted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
