American Cancer Society Launches Healthcare Access Campaign

Perhaps a sign of how dire our healthcare system has become that the most prominent cancer awareness advocate, the American Cancer Society, now needs to involve itself with healthcare reform in order to be successful with its mission.

American Cancer Society officials launched what they described as an "unprecedented" campaign Monday to encourage a national debate about access to healthcare in the United States.

"We are here today to declare that lack of access to timely and adequate healthcare has become a major cancer killer in America," said John R. Seffrin, PhD, chief executive officer of the American Cancer Society. "Far too many Americans do not have access to cancer prevention, early detection, and treatment services that we know and have proven save lives."
