Just last year, Congress appropriated the very first federal funds to study cancers in adolescents and young adults through a program within the Department of Defense called the Congressionally-Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP).
But now that funding is on the chopping block.

Cervical cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related death in women between the ages of 20 and 39. The human paplillomavirus (HPV) has been identified as the cause of 90% of cervical cancers and 70% of oral cancers found in the throat, neck, and tongue.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports, “about 39,800 HPV-associated cancers occur in the United States each year: about 23,300 among women, and about 16,500 among men.”

The Advisory Committee ...on Immunization Practices recommends both pre-teen girls and boys be vaccinated against the virus. Private and public payers are required to provide the vaccine at no additional cost to the patient or their family. However, usage remains low.

The American Cancer Society noted in their Cancer Facts & Figures 2018 report, “immunization rate remains low in the US; in 2016, 50% of girls 13-17 years – and only 36% at age 13 – were up to date with the HPV vaccination series.” Legislation to require the HPV vaccine for school admission has been signed into law in Virginia, the District of Columbia and Rhode Island where they currently have 70.8% of their adolescents up-to-date on HPV vaccination (73.0% of girls and 68.7% of boys).

The HPV vaccine doesn’t just prevent cancer in young adults but also its devastating after effects - infertility, risk for secondary malignancies and chronic conditions, and twice as many medical bills as their peers for the rest of their life.

Let's make sure parents know they can prevent their children from ever facing this life-threatening disease. Add the HPV vaccine to the list of required state immunizations.

Our CEO Samantha Eisenstein Watson was in Washington DC the past few days, receiving an award for the 2017 Advocacy Hero and working with our friends at Critica...l Mass and Congressman Ed Perlmutter and Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen to raise awareness of the Deferment for Active Cancer Treatment Act.

We need more co-sponsors to ensure that this passes -- and you can help! Contacting your rep only takes a minute. This bill is a no-brainer. It doesn't ask for money from the federal budget or any type of loan forgiveness. If passed, it would give anyone undergoing cancer treatment a year-long pause on their student loan payments so that they can focus instead on getting better. Please ask your rep to support it: http://cqrcengage.com/criticalmass/app/write-a-letter…

We sometimes get stuck in a rut and no matter how fast we try to run away from our worries, they follow us wherever we go! Yoga can help us change our patterns of behavior so that we may make more positive choices, which leads to improved health, lifestyle, and relationships. This Tuesday, join lifelong student of yoga... and instructor of Yoga Therapy, Akshaya Chinapa Reddy as she shares the benefits of Yoga Therapy.
