A New War on Cancer?

It's been one of THOSE days (and I know you all know what I mean). So, pardon my brevity, but I wanted to at least draw something exciting to your attention from President Obama's speech this week.

President Obama: "...launch new effort to conquer a disease that has touched the life of nearly every American by seeking a cure for cancer in our time."

It reminds me of President Kennedy's "man on the moon" address. I was holding my breath (ok, not really, but you get my point) to see the budget laid out today, and big news! President Obama's budget includes $6B for cancer at NIH and & hopefully follow-thru on doubling cancer funds as he promised during the elections!

All, keep advocating for change with your local, state & national legislative representatives! It makes a difference.

  1. That funny because I thought about Kennedy when I was listening also!
