Truth #30: I can influence what happens in Washington D.C. about breast cancer

TRUE. When you speak, members of Congress listen. Adding your voice to thousands of other breast cancer advocates ensures the message is clear—we want an end to breast cancer now.

For nearly 20 years, NBCC has worked to amplify voices of those determined to end this disease. By lobbying Congress for research funding and access to care, by challenging drug companies and the medical community on treatment standards, and by training survivors and allies to take their rightful place at the decision-making table, NBCC has made certain that breast cancer remains at the forefront of the scientific, healthcare and legislative agendas. Continued advocacy is the only way to ensure this issue remains a top priority.
