Thursday, February 11, 2016 - 4th Annual Stomach Cancer Capitol Hill Advocacy Day

Almost 40 DDF advocates went to Capitol Hill to fight for stomach cancer research funding at our 4th Annual Stomach Cancer Capitol Hill Advocacy Day.  They urged legislators and the NCI to support the fight for a cure and informed them how important it is for stomach cancer to be included in the $50 million DoD Peer Reviewed Cancer Research Program each year.  DDF was honored to present Senator Mazie K. Hirono with a Congressional Champion Award and held a Capitol Hill Reception to recognize Representatives Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Lois Frankel for their support for DDF's mission.  DDF also presented its inaugural Volunteer of the Year Award to North Carolina East Co-Chapter Founders Christina and Anthony Leonard and held an information, support, education, and training sessions.

CALL TO ACTION:

We need your assistance in getting as many members of Congress to sign the House and Senate Department of Defense (DoD) Peer Reviewed Cancer Research Program request letters and to submit our report language request for the National Cancer Institute.
