"While improving access to care for all Americans will help to make tremendous strides in our ability to reduce death and suffering related to cancer, sustained funding for cancer research is also critical to a comprehensive approach to defeating this disease," said Christopher W. Hansen, president of ACS CAN. "An estimated 1.4 million people will be diagnosed with cancer this year and research holds the key to advances in early detection and treatment so this disease becomes one we can live well with, rather than die from."ACS CAN is calling on Congress to sustain funding provided last year in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and provide the National Institutes of Health with $35.2 billion, including $5.8 billion for the National Cancer Institute in the FY 2011 Labor, Health and Human Services appropriations bill.
