Hello! Our names are Dhivya Bala, Sakthi Vijay, and Bavani Vijay, and we are students at the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) Advocacy Academy. The Cancer Action Network works to mediate the suffering of cancer patients and works with legislators to push laws that would benefit cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers. But the ACS CAN does not stop there... They work to:
Provide access to healthcare such as Medicaid, insurance, chemotherapy, and COVID-19 relief.
Prevent cancer through better access to screening and promoting healthy lifestyles in communities.
Funding cancer research.
Provide palliative care and improve the quality of life of cancer patients.
Promote tobacco-free living and regulation of tobacco products.
As students of the Advocacy Academy, we are currently working towards our goal of $500 to help support and reach the goals of the ACS CAN organization. Please consider donating; any amount will help us!!
