Advocacy Alliance

The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Advocacy Alliance is a sister organization to Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, and is a voice for change on Capitol Hill, in state legislatures and on the campaign trail. With the help of nearly 200,000 Komen Champions and Komen's network of 122 domestic affiliates, we are aggressively seeking increased funding for research and greater access to screening and treatment. The Komen Advocacy Alliance engages policymakers and leaders at all levels of government to advocate for an increased investment in breast cancer research and greater access to breast health services.

Take action and let your members of Congress and other key policymakers know how important these issues are to you.

Make Sure Congress Considers Cancer
Congress is developing health care reform legislation, and it's up to us to ensure the needs of cancer patients – increased funding for early detection and patient navigation services, improved access to health insurance, and protections from financial hardship for patients with insurance – are all included in the final health care package.

Help Reignite the ''War on Cancer''
The 21st Century Cancer ALERT Act, sponsored by Senators Edward Kennedy and Kay Bailey-Hutchinson, is our chance to reignite America's war on cancer – strengthening cancer research, developing new early detection tools and treatments, and improving cancer care.

Tell Congress: Expand access to clinical trials!
Clinical trials are a vital lifeline, offering access to high quality care and cutting edge treatments for people battling life-threatening diseases like cancer. But sadly, thousands of people are denied access to these trials each year, simply because their insurance doesn’t cover routine treatment costs associated with the study.

Tell Congress: Expand access to clinical trials!

Urge your senators to support the EARLY Act
There is a lack of awareness about the risks of breast cancer for young women and the unique challenges facing young women with breast cancer. The Breast Cancer Education and Awareness Requires Learning Young (EARLY) Act – just introduced in the Senate – is our chance to change that.
