Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Kick-Off Events
The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, the nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy affiliate of the American Cancer Society, provides a voice to Making Strides participants as they fight to change the face of breast cancer. This year, they are urging Congress to protect funding for critical cancer research.
By telling Congress to “Put the Power of the Purse Behind Research,” The American Society Cancer Action Network's message stresses the importance of protecting funding for research. This research will develop better early detection tools and treatments and improve patient-centered care for breast cancer.
