Fight Colorectal Cancer is proud to be a member of the One Voice Against Cancer (OVAC) coalition. OVAC is a collaboration of national nonprofit organizations representing millions of Americans, delivering a unified message to Congress and the White House on the need for increased cancer-related appropriations. OVAC’s united front enhances each organization’s ability to attain the funding levels necessary to win the war on cancer and to equip those facing cancer with the tools they need to fight this deadly disease.

Each year, the members of OVAC bring advocates to DC to participate in a lobby day focused on appropriations for federally-funded cancer programs.

Last year, several Fight Colorectal Cancer advocates came to DC to participate in the 2010 OVAC lobby day. Read about what they accomplished.

Please consider participating in the 2011 OVAC lobby day. In the current fiscal environment, every voice in support of federal funding for cancer programs makes a difference!

The 2011 OVAC lobby day is May 23-24.  The registration web site is now open at https://www.seeuthere.com/ACS/OVACLobbyDay2011.  The registration deadline is April 22, 2011.

If you have any questions about registration, please contact Rebekah Kuschmider at info@ovaconline.org.
