The following is a letter from Lance Armstrong about a growing global health crisis. We hope that you will review and act on this information. There are lives hanging in the balance and it is up to us, the citizens of the world, to speak up.
What if I told you we had an opportunity to stop the world?s worst killers?
This September, world leaders are gathering at the UN for a historic summit on cancer and other non-communicable diseases (NCDs). The agreement they reach?and how they put it into action back home?will mean life or death for millions of people.
I?ve just written an open letter to world leaders, calling on them to face up to the global cancer crisis and make NCDs a top health priority. I?m writing to ask you to add your name to this letter right now.
If we reach 100,000 signers before the summit, LIVESTRONG will hand-deliver this letter and your signature to the UN Secretary General and key Heads of State.
Tell world leaders to step up and fight the global cancer crisis.
This isn?t about longshot cures or leaps of faith. We?re calling for proven strategies that we know will save millions of lives: increased awareness, early detection, access to treatment and ongoing care.
As a member of the LIVESTRONG community, you support the fight against cancer every day. But by signing and sharing this letter, you can put pressure on world leaders to make the same commitment.
The UN Summit is a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make fighting cancer a global health priority.
Read LIVESTRONG?s open letter and join us in telling world leaders to seize this historic opportunity:
Let?s make sure cancer survivors everywhere get what they need to face this disease head-on.
