Recruit ACS CAN members for your Relay

ACS CAN and Relay For Life are teaming up together to fight cancer. 
We are asking Relayers across the country to lend their voice and their stories to ACS CAN’s efforts to tell elected officials what they can do to help in the fight against cancer.

Many important decisions about cancer are made not just in the doctor’s office, but also in your state legislature, in Congress and the White House. The federal government, for example, is the largest funder of medical research in this country with 80 cents of every dollar going back into communities across this country to conduct research that is going to change the face of cancer and other chronic diseases. It is critical that Congress increase funding for cancer research to continue progress against this disease.
