National Breast Cancer Coalition Survey Reveals That Lack of Commitment and Funding Impede the Fight Against Breast Cancer
Date:10/31/2008

NBCC Signals Call to Action to Voters on November 4th

WASHINGTON, Oct. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- American women increasingly believe that the goal of breast cancer research should be ending rather than simply treating breast cancer, according to a new survey released today by the National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC). Women see two main obstacles hindering that fight - first, that drug companies are not as committed as they should be to saving lives as opposed to making profits, and second, that there is insufficient federal funding directed to innovative research models.

The survey also revealed that a number of myths and misperceptions surrounding the disease persist.

Overcoming the obstacles and challenging the misinformation about breast cancer gives additional emphasis to NBCC's efforts to draw attention to this disease in this election cycle.

"This year's survey highlights the importance of breast cancer in the minds of American women. The obstacles they've noted will continue to be addressed by NBCC and must also be a priority of the next President and Congress. Women are expressing a need for the type of leadership, focus and commitment NBCC brings to the eradication of this disease," said NBCC President Fran Visco. "So on November 4th, NBCC calls on voters to choose candidates who display strong leadership and the political will to work with us to confront the obstacles to eradicating breast cancer. We must elect leaders who will embrace equal access to quality care, who will ensure breast cancer is a priority and who will ensure necessary resources are available and all stakeholders are working together to eradicate breast cancer."

NBCC believes that eradicating breast cancer can only be achieved through innovative research, equality of access, and the influence of consumer advocates wherever breast cancer research decisions are made. NBCC's 2008 Federal Platform '/>"/>
