The National Breast Cancer Coalition, founded in 1991, is based on the fact that breast cancer is not only a medical issue, but also a political one.  Every aspect of fighting breast cancer is grounded in politics, from federal funding for breast cancer research to access to quality health care for all to holding elected officials accountable for making breast cancer a priority issue.

With the 2020 Presidential election approaching, the National Breast Cancer Coalition is reaching out to candidates with a Public Policy Platform to endorse and sign.  The Platform states that as candidates (and as a possible President of the United States), the individual would:

•   support adequate and transparent funding for breast cancer research;

•   support access to quality health care for all, including preservation of the Breast and Cervical Cancer Treatment Act;

•   ensure that educated advocates participate where decisions about breast cancer are made.

Candidates are appearing frequently in New Hampshire and Iowa where NBCC Field Coordinators Nancy Ryan and Christine Carpenter, respectively, are attending events and inviting them to sign the Platform.

The list of Democratic candidates, once up to twenty-four, has narrowed slightly.  However, the list of signers is still long!

As of February 9, 2020, twenty-three candidates signed NBCC’s Public Policy Platform:

 

Beto O’Rourke

Pete Buttigieg

Elizabeth Warren

John Hickenlooper

Julián Castro

Cory Booker

John Delaney

Andrew Yang

Kirsten Gillibrand

Seth Moulton

Marianne Williamson

Bernie Sanders

Bill de Blasio

Amy Klobuchar

Steve Bullock 

Joe Sestak

Tim Ryan

Tulsi Gabbard

Joe Biden

Kamala Harris

Tom Steyer

Deval Patrick

Bill Weld
