Support the call for funding and implementation of NICCA

Tita Hope presents “NICCA”

The National Integrated Cancer Control Act or NICCA aims to give better support to cancer patients, especially those from the underserved, throughout every step of their cancer patient journey — from diagnosis, to getting access to treatment options, and to getting post-cancer care all while ensuring that the entire journey isn’t as physically, emotionally, and financially burdensome as it is typically known to be.

Ultimately, the law shall serve as a framework for all cancer-related activities of the government.
