President Obama: Help End Breast Cancer By 2020

About the Petition

One in eight women will suffer from breast cancer in their lives, and those affected are increasingly younger women. We need a united front to end breast cancer for future generations.

More than 600 organizations have initiated Breast Cancer Deadline 2020, and President Obama's support of the National Breast Cancer Coalition will help. The blueprint for this end date focuses on preventing women from getting breast cancer as well as understanding and stopping metastasis — the spread of cancer that's accountable for more than 90% of deaths.

An end to breast cancer is in sight. Stand with the National Breast Cancer Coalition to urge President Obama to commit to Breast Cancer Deadline 2020.

You need to support the 2020 deadline for ending breast cancer.

Breast cancer will claim the lives of almost 40,000 women this year. Discoveries and breakthroughs in breast cancer research have proven a cure is reachable. It’s time for us to focus our resources toward meeting a breast cancer deadline of January 1, 2020.

The National Breast Cancer Coalition has a comprehensive plan to prevent breast cancer and save women from dying, but it needs your support and resources. Commit to the Breast Cancer Deadline 2020, and let's save thousands of lives.

Sincerely,

[Your name here]
