Virtual: Saving Lives from Cancer Through Advocacy
Wednesday, April 8, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Ending suffering from cancer doesn’t just happen in the doctor’s office or research lab—it also must start at the statehouse and in Congress, by citizens whose lives have been impacted by cancer rallying together to demand change from their elected officials. Please join us for a conversation about how the ACS Cancer Action Network advocates for legislation as a catalyst to fight cancer. From gaining dramatic increases in funding for cancer research to ensuring all Americans have access to cancer care, their work is saving lives and leading to new innovative breakthroughs in how to fight this disease. Learn how to become empowered to use your story, voice and passion to advocate for yourself or friends and family members with cancer.
