We Asked, and You Took Action for Cancer Survivors. Thank You!

By: Cameron Krier Massey, JD, MPH, Director of Government Relations and Program Affairs

Earlier this month we asked for you to take action, and you delivered!

Thanks to your engagement, 27 members of Congress signed a letter calling for cancer survivor services to be a priority in the FY 2017 federal budget.

Cancer Survivors Should be a Priority

via the Austin American-Statesman

In our state, cancer is the leading cause of death for Texans age 85 and younger. It is also the leading cause of death from disease among Texas children.

According to the National Cancer Institute, at some point in their lives, nearly 40 percent of Americans will hear the words, “You have cancer.” And this year alone, nearly 1.7 million U.S. residents are expected to be diagnosed with the disease. The number is likely to rise as the baby boomer population ages.

Adult and youth Ultimate players from throughout the Bay Area come together to have fun and support an important cause. The creators of the event sat down with us and talked about the fun and unique event.
