The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network and a coalition of leading cancer centers, patient and provider advocacy groups and others committed to saving lives from cancer, delivered a letter to Governor Hochul today asking her to dedicate $25.6 million to the New York State Cancer Services Program (CSP) and establish a $1 million operating budget line to support the operations of the CSP in the Fiscal Year 2023-24. In 2023 there will be over 118,000 new cases of cancer and over 32,000 New Yorkers will die of the disease. More than half of these cancers can be caught early, when the survival rate is highest. Investing in cancer prevention and early detection saves lives. By investing in the CSP, New York can reduce the number of family members, loved ones, and friends lost to cancer.
