Cancer Mission 2020, the movement to build awareness and create a call to action, to ensure collaboration and a coordinated effort between public and private sectors in cancer research. 

Know the Facts

  • 11,000 Americans die from cancer every week.
  • 1 in 3 American Women and 1 in 2 American Men will face a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime.
  • Cancer is the leading cause of death for Americans 85 years of age and younger. Many believe that by 2016, cancer will be the leading cause of death in the United States.

Remarkable progress has been made in pediatric cancer, largely due to high participation rates in well-organized clinical trials. 60% to 70% of pediatric oncology patients participate in clinical trials, while only 1% to 3% of adults participate.

We can put an end to cancer by:

  • Using technology and resources, both intellectual and financial, wisely

  • Changing our approach to fighting cancer

  • Reporting clinical trial results in a timely fashion
