The Cure is a nationwide campaign to pass Federal Legislation increasing the National Cancer Research Budget. The goal is to obtain one million signatures on our online petition, convince two or more Congresspersons to introduce a bill allocating major funds to the National Cancer Research Budget, increasing the mere $5 billion it has now, and get it passed. With The Defense Budget at 120x The Cancer Research Budget, we need to be focusing on saving lives instead of taking them. Along the road to Congressional Approval, we are launching a series of initiatives to inspire youth advocacy Nationwide. As a staff of twenty teenagers, we intend to not only change America, but to impact the lives of the 590,000 people and their families affected by cancer every year. Together, we will find The Cure.
