ACUTE CARE, INC. supports the American Cancer Society’s Cancer Action Network.
Two of the Cancer Action Network’s eight priorities are Cancer Research and Patient Quality of Life
Cancer research saves lives.
Every new breakthrough in freeing the world from the pain and suffering of cancer – from new cures to innovative ways to prevent and treat the disease – have one thing in common; the research was in some way funded by the federal government’s National Institutes of Health and the National Cancer Institute.
Yet, when adjusting for inflation, federal funding for cancer research has seen huge cuts over the last decade. Increasing funding for cancer research must be a top budget priority for Congress.
Patient Quality of Life
Less pain. Emotional stability. Caregiver support. Nutritional guidance.
These are what cancer patients and survivors need when coping with the side effects of cancer treatment. We can reduce health care spending and save more lives by looking beyond treating the cancer and focusing on treating the patient as well.
By supporting the courage, passion and determination of cancer patients and cancer survivors, we will help them defeat cancer and thrive once again.
