Secretary Sebelius, We Need a National Breast Cancer Prevention Plan

Breast Cancer and the Environment: Prioritizing PreventionWe are on the brink of big change, but we need you to raise your voice with us to make it happen.

A new report concludes that preventing environmental exposures is the most promising path to decrease incidence of the disease, and calls for a national breast cancer prevention strategy.

The report, "Breast Cancer and the Environment: Prioritizing Prevention," was released by a Congressionally mandated federal advisory committee and could mark a turning point in how our government acts on breast cancer.

What You Can Do

This report is more than a validation of the Breast Cancer Fund's work to prevent breast cancer by reducing our exposures to chemicals and radiation in our everyday environments. It’s a call to action, and you can help ensure that our leaders heed the call.

The report's first stop is the desk of U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, who must create an action plan to implement the report. This action plan can lay the groundwork for a national prevention strategy that will require commitment and hard work from the Obama administration and Congress.

Use the form below to submit a letter to Secretary Sebelius urging her to create an action plan. Your letter has more impact if you add your own personal reasons for caring about breast cancer prevention.
