moonshot image

In his 8th and final State of the Union, President Barrack Obama addressed an issue near and dear to us - cancer. President Obama announced the Cancer ‘Moonshot’. The Moonshot is inspired by America’s drive a generation ago to put a man on the moon. This is an ambitious and comprehensive action plan to make a giant leap for patients – to rapidly and dramatically reduce mortality and suffering in cancer. Vice President Joe Biden will head this resolute program. President and CEO of Susan G. Komen, Dr. Judith Salerno, expressed her excitement in a Huffington Post article calling the initiative, “...a test of our collective will to confront a disease that affects every American, directly or indirectly, over the course of our lifetimes”. Click to read Dr. Salerno’s full response or to learn more about the ‘Moonshot”.

 

 

 

bc stamp

Congress unanimously approved the Breast Cancer Research Stamp Reauthorization Act of 2015. It extends the authority of the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) through 2019 to continue issuing a fundraising stamp for cutting-edge breast cancer research. “Stamping out breast cancer can be as simple as buying a stamp!” says Jackie Speier, one of the Representatives leading the effort. The forever breast cancer stamp is $.60 each, and 70 percent of the net amount raised is given to the National Institutes of Health and 30 percent is given to the Medical Research Program at the Department of Defense. All to help end breast cancer forever.
