The National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS) joined more than 20 patient and professional organizations in the Cancer Leadership Council in sending a letter to Congressional leadership urging the end of the government shutdown. The letter describes the effects of the shutdown on cancer research and cancer patients. “Even the temporary closure of important federal health agencies has caused the public-private network for cancer care to be frayed, threatened the quality of the cancer care system, and called into question the networks of care that include federal partners,” concludes the letter.

The NCCS Cancer Policy & Advocacy Team (CPAT) is a program for survivors and caregivers to learn about pressing policy issues that affect quality cancer care in order to be engaged as advocates in public policy around the needs of cancer survivors.
