Author, Cancer Survivor to Present Six-Point Call for Presidential Action on Cancer Policy

WASHINGTON, May 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Dick Drechsler, an author and foundation director, will present a six-point plan to improve dramatically the nation's approach to cancer prevention, screening, treatment and post-treatment care at a National Press Club Newsmakers press conference at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, May 27, in the Lisagor Room, 13th floor, National Press Building, 529 14th St., N.W.

"It's time for a no-holds-barred game plan to conquer cancer and help those affected by the disease, both when facing the uphill battles of treatment and their aftermath -- piecing together the fragments of their lives, relationships and spirits -- after post treatment care,"

says Drechsler.

After surviving a life-threatening bout with Stage 3 neck and throat cancer that left him unable to eat, Drechsler undertook a sailing odyssey that inspired the establishment of the Sail Through Cancer Foundation (www.sailthrucancer.org).

His book, Manning Up In Alaska (www.ManningUpInAlaska.com), tells of his adventurous 2600-mile voyage from Mexico to Alaska that he says has inspired thousands of followers and provided him with the impetus to make a difference in the lives of cancer sufferers.

The Sail Through Cancer Foundation, a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charity, was originally created to provide on-the-water respite for cancer patients, survivors, their families and caregivers through volunteer boaters participating in our Armada of Hope.
