Maine ACS CAN Day at the Capitol

Join fellow advocates, cancer survivors, and caregivers from across the state as we meet with our Maine lawmakers and ask them to support legislation that will help eliminate cancer as a major health problem.

Defeating cancer is as much a matter of public policy as scientific discovery. Lawmakers play a critical role in determining how much progress we make as a country and state to defeat cancer.

Sharing your stories and your experiences with lawmakers about why these issues are important to you will make a difference. With your help, we can pass these laws in Maine and move forward in the fight against cancer.

Maine ACS CAN's Day at the Capitol is a time for those of us whose lives have been impacted by cancer to come together in Augusta from all parts of the state to share our stories and talk with our elected officials about making the fight against cancer a priority in Maine.

Together, we CAN make a difference in the fight against cancer and ensure the voices of cancer patients are heard in Augusta. Training is provided, so even if you are new to advocacy and haven't met your legislators yet, you will be supported and provided with the necessary information.
