The focus of the Prevent Cancer Foundation is to support research into the prevention and early detection of cancer, to educate individuals about the role of a healthy diet and lifestyle choices in preventing cancer and to support programs that increase access to early detection technologies. It is important as an organization to advocate for policies at the federal level, within Congress and the Administration that support these priorities.

While hundreds of health care bills are introduced in Congress each year, very few of them are considered. The Prevent Cancer Foundation supports debate and passage of bills that advance cancer research and prevention activities, as well as those that support the needs of cancer patients and families touched by this devastating disease.

If you would like to receive periodic updates and action alerts about legislation being considered by Congress that impacts cancer research and the well-being of patients, please join our Advocacy Action Center.
