deadlineLee, NH — On January 16, 2014, New Hampshire Congresswoman Ann McLane Kuster (D-NH) officially endorsed the National Breast Cancer Coalition’s Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®.

The New Hampshire Breast Cancer Coalition Board of Directors applauds Congresswoman Kuster for endorsing Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®.  “This is a great way to kick off the New Year,” stated NHBCC President Nancy Ryan.  “Congresswoman Kuster understands the urgency of accelerating our efforts to end deaths from breast cancer and we applaud her willingness to publicly declare her support for Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®.”

Breast Cancer Deadline 2020® is a bold, unprecedented initiative aimed at understanding by January 1, 2020, how to end breast cancer.  The National Breast Cancer Coalition launched Breast Cancer Deadline 2020® in 2010 to renew a sense of urgency to ending breast cancer, to refocus global efforts on ending breast cancer and to harness investments in scientific research to save lives.  Breast Cancer Deadline 2020® focuses on primary prevention (stopping women from getting breast cancer) and preventing metastasis (the spread of cancer), which is responsible for 90% of breast cancer deaths.
