Educating Legislators about Breast Cancer Funding Needs

Staff and volunteers from Linda Creed are active in educating our elected leaders about the need for consistent breast cancer research funding. This includes regular visits to Harrisburg and Washington, DC to educate and advocate for funding for breast cancer detection, research and treatment. Linda Creed is on the National Breast Cancer Coalition board and is PA grassroots coordinator. Early accomplishments include groundbreaking work that we did as part of NBCC on the Department of Defense Research program that resulted in the breast and cervical cancer treatment program.

In April, Linda Creed participated in the National Breast Cancer Coalition’s Advocate Leadership Summit in Washington, DC.
