First Anniversary of New War on Cancer Marks Many Advances
Date:7/21/2009

Goals and strategies from the U.S. Surgeons General provided roadmap to take decisive action in making cancer prevention and survivorship a national priority

AUSTIN, Texas and TUCSON, Ariz., July 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- While Lance Armstrong, founder and chairman of the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LAF), cancer survivor, and champion cyclist, battles through the daily demands of the Tour de France, the National Call to Action on Cancer Prevention and Survivorship that Armstrong helped launch one year ago continues to wage the new war on cancer.

In July 2008, Armstrong and the four most recent U.S. Surgeons General joined collaborators from across the United States to launch the National Call to Action.

"The National Call to Action on Cancer Prevention and Survivorship has served as intended - a battle plan to meet specific national goals to improve cancer prevention, recommended screenings, early detection, treatment, and survivorship. We continue to call on all sectors of society to take action and make the war on cancer a national priority," said Richard H. Carmona, M.D., M.P.H., FACS, 17th U.S. Surgeon General (2002-2006) and president of the non-profit Canyon Ranch Institute.

Doug Ulman, president and CEO of the Lance Armstrong Foundation, said, "Since last July, we have made significant strides in the U.S. in the fight against cancer. But cancer claims eight million lives around the globe every year and the world is now our focus. It is efforts like the National Call to Action on Cancer Prevention and Survivorship that will help us succeed at reducing the burden of cancer worldwide."

In the year since Armstrong and the U.S. Surgeons General issued the National Call to Action, many significant milestones in the new war against cancer have been met. Some highlights include:
