Last week, in his speech to Congress, President Obama vowed to launch a major initiative to find a cure for cancer “in our time”.
President Obama said,
“Our recovery plan will invest in electronic health records and new technology that will reduce errors, bring down costs, ensure privacy, and save lives.”
“It will launch a new effort to conquer a disease that has touched the life of nearly every American, including me, by seeking a cure for cancer in our time.”
Believe it, it can come true. We need to continue our support of DFCI and the Jimmy Fund, because, as much as I believe that the President will make this a priority, we can not rely on our government to do this on its own. Now, more than ever, we must continue to support the mission of DFCI and help make cancer history.
It can happen. It will happen. You can help eliminate cancer in our lifetime.
