Mission and Advocacy

 
 

As the Mission and Advocacy committee we strive to promote ACS CAN (American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network) for the University of Northern Iowa chapter of Colleges Against Cancer

ACS CAN is the nation’s leading cancer advocacy organization that is working every day to make cancer issues a national priority.

Many of the most important decisions about cancer are made outside of your doctor’s office. Instead, they are made by your state legislature, in Congress and in the White House. ACS CAN empowers regular people to be part of the growing national movement that is fighting back against cancer.

ACS CAN, the nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy affiliate of the American Cancer Society, is holding lawmakers accountable for their words and their actions. We demand that our leaders not only talk about fighting cancer but take real steps toward decreasing the number of people suffering and dying from cancer.

We encourage you to join us in our fight against cancer by joining ACS CAN at www.ACSCAN.org or by joining our Mission and Advocacy committee.
