Some days the world of breast cancer that we live in seems larger than I can manage. I want to shake my fists when I hear about another diagnosis or scream out loud when we lose another young woman. Will it ever end?
I know there are many smart and determined people working around the clock to try to cure breast cancer … and I have 100% faith that they will do it, someday. But how long do we have to wait? Is there something we can do to end this once and for all?
The answer is yes.
YSC has joined forces with the National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC) to present President Obama with a challenge: The challenge is to make ending breast cancer one of his priorities during the next four years.
Imagine if that happened?
NBCC announced on Tuesday that former President Bill Clinton will serve as the Honorary Chair of Breast Cancer Deadline 2020, NBCC’s strategic plan of action to end breast cancer by January 1, 2020.
So, now we need to get President Obama on board. Imagine how much we could accomplish if the current President of the United States decided to do everything in his power to end this disease. Imagine how fast the right researchers would get funding. Imagine researchers sharing their findings to ensure the deadline was met. Imagine if the entire country unified to make this happen. Imagine that such a cure could lead in the fight against all cancers.
To ask the President to consider this extraordinary challenge, YSC and NBCC must show President Obama that the American people want this to happen. In order to do this, we need to collect enough signatures to show the President we are serious. And we only have two more weeks to do this.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
