I’m pleased to announce last week Senators Edward Kennedy (D-MA) and Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) introduced the 21st Century Cancer Alert Act (Senate Bill 717). This legislation is a great first step toward renewing the war on cancer in our lifetime. Make your voice heard today by sending an email to your elected officials.
The Lance Armstrong Foundation, in conjunction with our fellow cancer organizations, has been hard at work behind the scenes for the last several months trying to make this legislation a reality.You may remember Lance testified at a congressional hearing prior to Senator Kennedy’s diagnosis in May. If passed, this legislation would advance the goals of the National Cancer Program to coordinate a more comprehensive approach to cancer research, treatment and survivorship.
We will work tirelessly over the next few months to ensure this bill becomes a law, but we can’t do it alone?we need YOUR help. You can expect more frequent emails from us regarding this and other happenings in Washington, DC. Please take the time to act on these alerts, because together we can make a difference. Take action now and tell them you support the Alert Act.
President and CEO, Lance Armstrong Foundation
