Through the American Cancer Society Cancer Action NetworkSM (ACS CAN), the nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy affiliate of the American Cancer Society, Making Strides participants are able to fight to change the face of breast cancer in our nation's capital. This year, together with ACS CAN, Making Strides participants are urging Congress to protect funding for critical cancer research.
How will participants do this? By telling Congress to "Put the Power of the Purse Behind Research." Since Congress holds the purse strings to cancer research funding, we are encouraging participants to tell their representatives to protect funding for research that will develop better early detection tools and treatments and improve patient-centered care for breast cancer.
Make a difference in the fight against breast cancer, become a member of this grassroots movement.
