We’re all just one degree from someone with cancer. Each of us has a relative, friend or co-worker who has battled the disease. Many of us have fought cancer ourselves or given care to a loved one with the disease.
The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network and Stand Up To Cancer have joined in an unprecedented effort to save more lives from cancer.
We’re asking Congress to increase medical research funding at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) by $6 billion over two years, including $1 billion for cancer research at the National Cancer Institute (NCI).
Cancer strikes 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women. Thanks to innovative cancer treatments and therapies, nearly 15 million cancer survivors are living and thriving in America.
Lifesaving cancer treatments have one thing in common: They begin with basic research often made possible by federal investments. NIH and NCI fund promising research projects conducted in labs nationwide. These projects save lives.
Join us at www.OneDegreeProject.org to increase cancer research funding/save more lives. Cancer hits hard. Together we can fight back.
