Ask your U.S. Senators to increase cancer research funding

Organized by American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network

Jul 15, 2019 — 

It’s time to flex some muscle.

In March, ACS CAN volunteers spoke out to make clear that the president’s proposed cuts to cancer research funding were unacceptable.

Now, as the U.S. Senate debates a new budget, we need to ensure all senators have heard that message ... loud and clear!

Sign our new petition calling on your U.S. Senators to support strong increases in cancer research funding.

We’ll be hand-delivering these petitions to senators in August and I want every senator to have a huge stack.

Millions of cancer patients and survivors are alive today thanks to previous investments in cancer research. It’s our responsibility to ensure the next generation has an equal - no, make that a better - chance of surviving this terrible disease.

Thank you,

Korinne Moore Berenson, ACS CAN

P.S. That’s right. We’re not just saying no cuts. We’re calling for a strong increase to ensure our nation’s scientists have the funding they need to uncover new lifesaving treatments and cures for this terrible disease. Sign the petition.
