BREAST CANCER RESEARCH FUNDING
Biomedical research has been a driving force behind many decades of advances that have improved the health of people in every corner of America, especially in the lives of those impacted by breast cancer. Thanks to this research, Americans are living longer, healthier lives and advances that were once unimaginable have been achieved and have opened a world of unprecedented opportunities for science, medicine and health.
We can do much more with a robust and sustained investment in biomedical research. As Americans are getting older, breast cancer and other chronic diseases consume the vast majority of our health care dollars. We can meet these challenges head-on, but in order to do so, increased funding for biomedical research must be an unwavering national priority.
