Cancer patients to rally at University Hospital for research funding

  • Follow Health

Cancer patients at University Hospital will be part of a national effort Thursday to urge Congress not to cut funding for cancer research.

Patients and advocates will rally from 6 to 7 p.m. in front of Professional Center 2, at the corner of Walton Way and D’Antignac Street. They will be urged to sign a banner that will be delivered Sunday, when hundreds will converge on Washington to rally for preserving cancer research funding.

The rallies are being organized by local volunteers of the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, the advocacy arm of the American Cancer Society.

After all these years and

After all these years and billions of dollars and we still don't have a cure other than to kill good blood cells in order to get to bad ones (chemotheraphy). Pure carrot juice is a better treatment then chemo. By the way I am a cancer survivor that went through chemo. I never will take chemo again. So unless we can get better results maybe we should think about how much we are going to spend on cancer research.
