Healing America – Upholding the Constitution of the United States of America
President Biden has reignited the Cancer Moonshot and set a new national goal: if we work together, we can cut the death rate from cancer by at least 50% over the next 25 years, and improve the experience of people and their families living with and surviving cancer. We can make real progress toward ending cancer as we know it. It will take all of us doing our part. Join us. Ending cancer as we know it will take all of us doing our part. We know that the best ideas, the stories that will inspire change, and the actions that can help deliver on this bold mission come from across the United States and beyond. President Biden is calling, on the: - Scientific community to bring its boldest thinking to this fight; - Medical and public health community to improve their outreach to and support for under-served communities, to help patients and families have the best experience possible while living with and surviving cancer, and to improve patient outcomes; - Private sector to step up — to develop and test new treatments, to share more data and knowledge, and to collaborate on tools that can benefit all Americans; and - People living with cancer and survivors, their caregivers and families, and those who have lost someone to keep sharing their perspectives and experiences and to keep pushing for progress. The goals and priorities for the Cancer Moonshot must be informed by those with direct experience with cancer. Please share your ideas for how we can focus these efforts — and your stories of inspiration and knowledge from your experience with cancer.

Furthermore, it is imperative that funding and support by governments, corporations and major global conglomerates - who have trillions of dollars at their disposal - provide the necessary support to the scientific community, so that vital breakthroughs can be achieved to counter-act and prevent cancer - with the long-term aim that cancer can be cured and healed.
