At the heart of the National Cancer Plan is the idea that everyone has a role in ending cancer as we know it.

But no single group or person can do this alone. To succeed, federal agencies, industry, universities, advocacy groups, nonprofits, and individual people must work together to share knowledge, solve problems, remove barriers, and bring about meaningful change.
