Make Cancer Prevention a Priority

    1. Petition by

      Greenpeace

One American will die from cancer every minute this year. But that can change. President Obama has the ability to reverse decades of failed policies and set the course for a national cancer prevention strategy that includes eliminating the use of cancer-causing chemicals in everyday products. Greenpeace is joining up with around 200 coalition groups to deliver a petition to the President in early May on the one-year anniversary of the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) President’s Cancer Panel report. We'd love to add 5,000 signatures from Change.org members. Sign our petition right now urging President Obama to make cancer prevention a priority by acting to protect us from cancer-causing chemicals and we’ll include your name in the delivery.

To:
President of the United States
"Millions of Americans are living with cancer, and millions more are affected by the devastating toll a cancer diagnosis takes on families, communities and workplaces. Please make it a top priority for your Administration to create a cancer prevention plan that stops the use of cancer-causing chemicals in products used in America every day."

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I do not sign in sympathy. I sign as a cancer patient since 2003. I have developed an extreme sensitivity to chemicals since chemo.

      While we add chemicals, to balance the chemicals that are already in: The water I drink, the air that I breath, the food that I eat, we are not cleaning up the problem.

      Please support a strong E.P.A. initiative in support of Human Rights. Corporations in this country have ALREADY proven that it is the All Mighty Bottom line that drives them to cut corners and endanger our lives.

      March 4 2011 I lost my father to lung cancer. He didn't have to suffer like that if there was prevention

      My husband and brother are cancer survivors. It was a long and difficult journey but they are still with me. My dad did not survive cancer. He died of brain cancer in 1994 and I still miss him.
