Cancer Moonshot One Year Later

Cancer Moonshot: One Year Later

On June 27, 2017, one year after President Obama and Vice President Biden launched the Cancer Moonshot, hundreds of partners convened to assess their accomplishments and understand what barriers they must continue to address. Take a moment to review the Cancer Moonshot: One Year Later Report to read about this meeting which was held by the Cancer Support Community, American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, CancerCare, Friends of Cancer Research, LIVESTRONG Foundation, National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship, and National Patient Advocate Foundation.

The Cancer Moonshot aims to double the speed of progress in cancer with the idea that, “If we ask people to work together to do something they aren’t doing yet and give them extra money and an army of people like you to support them to be bold and ambitious, people will answer the call,” said Greg Simon, President of the Biden Cancer Initiative. A positive yet disruptive force, the Cancer Moonshot asked leaders in 2016 to form new collaborations and “to look up from their powerpoints, phones, and their traditional ways of working to answer the question: how do we do a better job of touching patients now, and in a big way?”
