Northwest Medical Specialties and the American Cancer Society visit the capital!

Members of the NWMS team joined the American Cancer Society’s Cancer Action Network this month to advocate on behalf of our patients and our community.


ACS CAN is the nation’s leading cancer advocacy organization that is working every day to make cancer issues a national priority.

Many of the most important decisions about cancer are made outside of your doctor’s office. Instead, they are made by your state legislature, in Congress and in the White House. ACS CAN empowers regular people to be part of the growing national movement that is fighting back against cancer.

If we are to succeed in our mission and fight against cancer, it won’t just happen in the doctor’s office or research lab. This movement must start at the statehouse and in Congress. And, it will be led by volunteers – regular people whose lives have been impacted by cancer – rallying together to demand change from their elected officials.
