We are pleased to have advocacy volunteers from OVAC member organizations coming together in Washington to talk about the importance of federal funding for cancer research and prevention at a time when your presence can have a significant impact on the legislative process. OVAC is increasingly recognized as a leading cancer advocacy coalition, and serves the unique and important role of uniting patient advocates, researchers, and health professionals in support of a common goal: to urge Congress to increase funding for the fight against cancer!
Your voice is critical to ensuring that members of Congress recognize the role they play in fighting cancer by providing the necessary funds for the National Institutes of Health, National Cancer Institute and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with other federal agencies and programs that are essential to helping people with cancer.
This year we are urging Congress to increase support for cancer research at NCI and cancer prevention programs at CDC.
We look forward to seeing you in May!
