May is National Cancer Research Month
Since May is National Cancer Research Month, we’re sharing news and resources. It’s fitting that Congress announced increased funding today for NIH to include a $475 million bump for the National Cancer Institute.
We’re following LACMA group partner City of Hope and their success in furthering cancer treatment.
We’re watching The Beau Biden Cancer Moonshot and their work “to accelerate cancer research aims to make more therapies available to more patients, while also improving our ability to prevent cancer and detect it at an early stage.”
Need resources for dealing cancer or to share with patients? The website for the National Cancer Institute has a lot of info, including this glossary with more than 8,000 terms explained.
And look for updates throughout the month at #RealHopeIs on Twitter to hear personal stories about thriving after a cancer diagnosis.
