ADVOCACY - Programs & Events

Congressional Childhood Cancer Caucus & Summits:

Chaired by Representatives Michael McCaul (R-TX), Jackie Speier (D-CA), Mike Kelly (R-PA), and G.K. Butterfield (D-NC), this is a bipartisan Caucus for members of the House of Representatives. The Caucus serves as a clearinghouse for information on pediatric cancer and a forum to aid legislators working together to address pediatric cancer. Every September, the Caucus holds a Summit on pediatric cancer issues to raise awareness and discuss current legislative issues.

Take Action: Ask your Representative to become a member of the Congressional Childhood Cancer Caucus or extend your thanks if they already are.

Childhood Cancer Action Day:

This advocacy opportunity is held annually in Washington, DC and is hosted by the Alliance for Childhood Cancer, a coalition of over 30 national patient advocacy groups and professional, medical, and scientific organizations. The two-day event includes issues and advocacy training and pre-arranged Capitol Hill visits with Members of Congress and their staff to discuss important childhood cancer issues currently before Congress.

Learn more about how to participate – either virtually or in person – on the Alliance for Childhood Cancer website.
