Making Strides Through Advocacy
For the past three years the partnership between Making Strides and the American Cancer Society Cancer Action NetworkSM (ACS CAN) has changed the face of breast cancer in our nation’s capitol. Thousands of dedicated Making Strides volunteers have made their voices heard and together, with ACS CAN, they are urging Congress to ensure that every woman has access to lifesaving cancer screening and treatment.
But this year, we’re asking you to take a look in the mirror and ask yourself, “what if it were me?” Because of inadequate funding only 1 in 5 eligible women gets the lifesaving breast cancer screening and treatment they need through the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program.
To make your voice heard and to urge Congress to ensure that all women have access to lifesaving cancer screening and treatment, please visit www.acscan.org/makingstrides.
