Feb 2, 2022
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Washington, D.C.: Nancy Brinker, founder of The Promise Fund of Florida and Susan G. Komen, released the following statement after attending President Joe Biden’s Cancer Moonshot Initiative announcement at The White house.
“Since the signing of the National Cancer Act 50 years ago, it has been understood that in order to fight cancer, you first have to talk about it. Today’s announcement from President Biden illustrates a bold commitment to bring tangible action and public investment to decades of discussion,” Nancy Brinker said. “To combat the immense challenges posed to the cancer community by the pandemic, along with glaring racial disparities in care and treatment, the full focus and collaborative efforts of the federal government, private sector and nonprofit community will be required. I, along with the Promise Fund of Florida, were pleased to be invited to today’s Moonshot announcement at The White House and point to the success of our patient-driven continuum of care model that eliminates barriers to breast and cervical screenings, diagnostic and cancer care. Our commitment to the effort outlined by President Biden is strong and we look forward to working with local, state and federal partners to continue building upon our results that are saving lives.”
