Live to Conquer Cancer
Cancer treatment advances are transforming cancer care and giving hope to the millions of Americans who face a cancer diagnosis each year. This progress would not be possible without the strong support provided by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the passionate work of cancer researchers who are finding new ways to diagnose, prevent, and treat cancer to improve outcomes for people with cancer.
Through the “I Live to Conquer Cancer” campaign, ASCO is putting a human face on those who have dedicated their lives to clinical cancer research and the patients who inspire them to continue their work against cancer.
We invite you to join this campaign to help create a steady drumbeat on the importance of federal funding for cancer research.
