Increase funding for cancer research and help save more lives

Dear Lawmaker: 

Millions of cancer patients and survivors are alive today thanks to previous investments in cancer research. We cannot lose progress in the fight against cancer!

The facts are clear: 

  • Cancer research saves lives.
  • Despite our progress, more than 600,000 people are estimated to have died of cancer in 2021 alone. 
  • Every major cancer breakthrough in the past 50 years can be traced back to federally funded research. 

To maintain this record of success, and save even more lives, we need sustained investments that cover both the rising cost of research and medical inflation. 

Please support an increase in funding for cancer research at the National Cancer Institute.
