The War on Cancer Turns 50

The War on Cancer Turns 50. “In 1971, a single piece of legislation changed how we view cancer forever. The National Cancer Act cemented our nation’s commitment to science, establishing networks of cancer centers, clinical trials, data collection systems, and advanced research. Join us as we share these stories of progress and the people, past and present, who have made progress possible.” National Cancer Act 50th Anniversary Commemoration – National Cancer Institute. As we look to the future, we know more survivors will be able to share their stories of hope!
