As an undergraduate research scientist in a cancer relevant field, I've experienced first hand the need for increases in research funding; potentially life saving research projects live and die in the laboratory on the ability to secure research funding. Additionally, we realize the emotional needs of families affected by cancer and I'm very excited about our youth education programs.
