The Congressional Caucus on the Deadliest Cancers
132 Total Members

We are currently asking all members of Congress to join the Congressional Caucus on the Deadliest Cancers. Chaired by Representatives Leonard Lance (R-NJ), Anna Eshoo (D-CA), Dave Reichert (R-WA) and Joe Kennedy III (D-MA), the caucus raises awareness about the deadliest forms of cancer, defined as those with a five-year survival rate below 50 percent, such as pancreatic cancer, and advocates for research funding and other measures to increase survival rates for these cancers.

Thanks to the efforts of our volunteers across the country, members of Congress from both parties and both the House and the Senate have joined the caucus to show their support and commitment to addressing the threat of the deadliest cancers. Below is a list of legislators who have joined the caucus.

Eighteen new members of the 115th Congress joined the Congressional Caucus on the Deadliest Cancers, raising membership to 132 at present.
