Congratulations to the Prevent Cancer Foundation on your 25thAnniversary!
Many of us involved in these efforts have lost a loved one to this disease – or seen a colleague or friend endure painful treatments in a long battle with breast cancer. Through initiatives like the Congressional Families Cancer Prevention program, you and others have taken personal experiences with this disease and used them to raise awareness and improve access to treatment and education for thousands of other women.
Your dedication and passion are inspirational to women and men everywhere. Today, as we recognize this important anniversary, let us reaffirm our commitment to the ongoing work of prevention, detection, and treatment of this disease as we look forward to a breast-cancer free world.
