About Advocacy

Unified to Conquer Cancer

Cancer patient advocates are an important part of the team in the fight against cancer. Patient Advocates work in many different ways - some are dedicated to specific types of cancer, while some concentrate on making policy or procedure changes by working with legislators, insurance companies, and physicians; some advocates work to make the medical and scientific information understandable to cancer patients and their families.

According to some conservative estimates, there are over 250 cancer-related Patient Advocacy organizations in operation on a national or regional level. These groups have thousands of members and advocates working to make a difference in the lives of millions.

Many advocates. One goal.
