The Obama Cancer Plan Should Prioritize Prevention, Says Cancer Prevention Coalition
Date:1/23/2009

patient, although their survival rates are similar.

The Obama Cancer Plan is subject to Congressional authorization, and funding approval by Congressman David Obey, Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, and Senator Robert Byrd, Chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee. These committees are now in a position to require that major priority should be directed to cancer prevention rather than just to oncology. Clearly, the more cancer is prevented, the less there is to treat. As importantly, this will also be of major help in achieving President Obama's goal "to lower health care costs."

As cancer prevention scientists and advocates, we strongly welcome the new Administration with joy and hope.
