National Cancer Institute (NCI) Releases Scientific Framework for Pancreatic Cancer!
This report, which was required by the Recalcitrant Cancer Research Act, is an important step toward improving pancreatic cancer patient outcomes. Read our press release to learn more about the report. Now we need let Congress know that the report they asked for has been released and urge them to provide the NCI with sufficient funding so that we can fully leverage the opportunities that will come from the recommendations included in the report.
Tell Your Representative to Support Increased NCI Funding
During the month of March, the House Appropriations Committee is accepting specific funding requests from members of Congress for federal programs and agencies. This is a key opportunity for us to request increased funding in FY15 for the National Cancer Institute (NCI), which last year lost more than $250 million as a result of sequestration. Please click on the button below to send a message to your U.S. Representative asking them to submit a request to the Appropriations Committee for increased NCI funding. The deadline for Members to submit requests to the committee is April 4, so please act today!
Thank you for your support!
