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, individuals, advocates, researchers, health care providers, businesses, government agencies, and nonprofits must work together to share knowledge, solve problems, remove barriers, and bring about meaningful change.
