American Cancer Society: More men and women could die. 

That is the unacceptable outcome if Congress does not restore the recent cuts it made to cancer research funding. 

I know that's a bold and scary comment, and I don't say it lightly. But, it's the truth. 

As Congress works on a new budget, they need to hear from you. 

Ask your Member of Congress to restore and increase funding for cancer research. 

The impact of these and other proposed cuts are already being felt:

  • At Roswell Park Cancer Institute in New York, researchers have had to slow down their research on multiple myeloma and prostate cancer
  • At Georgetown University in Washington, DC, researchers have halted a study on breast cancer treatment due to uncertainty about their funding

Saving lives from cancer starts with cancer research. 

It only takes one minute to send a message to your Member of Congress. In that same minute, 3 more people will hear those scary words, "You have cancer." 

Please act now.
