White House Dubs New National Cancer Plan “Cancer Moonshot”

The plan aims to cut cancer deaths in half by 2025.

Federal health officials released their new framework to reduce cancer mortality by 50% in the next 25 years, which they named the “Cancer Moonshot” initiative. The plan outlines eight goals, a set of strategies to meet each goal, and a call to action for everyone to “do their part to help end cancer as we know it.”

“Building on these tremendous efforts and to realize the vision laid out by President Biden and First Lady Biden as part of the Cancer Moonshot, the National Cancer Plan provides a framework for everyone—across the federal government and all of society—to collaborate in ending cancer as we know it,” the National Cancer Institute wrote in the press release.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That Cancer Moonshot is a successful guiding star for those working to end cancer mortality.
  • For administration officials to come together to as they attempt to carry out this ambitious plan.
  • For the National Cancer Institute as they lead this effort to fight cancer in America.
