We need better access to cancer screenings during COVID

Recent news

We just saved more lives from cancer

I’ve got some great news.

Thanks in part to your action, the provisions we fought so hard for were included in the COVID relief package that Congress passed yesterday. Many cancer patients and survivors like Sarah will now have access to lower health insurance premiums with COBRA or an Affordable Care Act plan, which will help them get the care they need.

This is huge, so we wanted to take a moment to thank you for taking action.

However, the fight to get cancer patients the support they need during this pandemic is not over.

We still need Congress to provide funding to restart the cancer clinical trials that were halted due to the pandemic, and to ensure that potentially lifesaving breakthroughs are not lost.

Will you send another message to your members of Congress right now asking them to provide this critical funding? It will only take you a minute with our easy action form.

Cancer patients needs that next cure. They need that next breakthrough treatment. As we saw with the COVID relief package passed yesterday, your action really does make a difference.

Thanks for joining the fight to make sure cancer clinical trials get the funding they need to help save more lives from cancer.
