Here is what the NBCC says about this year’s theme

It’s Time….To Make Your Voice Heard, To Get On the Clock, To End Breast Cancer.

The National Breast Cancer Coalition has declared a deadline for the end of breast cancer – Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®.  Advocates from around the country and the world will gather in Washington to demonstrate how we’re bringing a renewed sense of urgency to the conversation on breast cancer research, public policy and care. Join us at the NBCC Annual Advocate Summit to rally behind Breast Cancer Deadline 2020® and learn the most effective approaches for implementing our strategic plan to end breast cancer by January 1, 2020.

For decades, the breast cancer movement has existed within the context of hoping to find a cure and hoping for an end. NBCC says, “No more!” By setting a deadline, we demand that from this moment forward, all research and policy decisions surrounding breast cancer are made and guided by the goal of ending this disease by 2020.

The 2012 Advocate Summit will teach breast cancer advocates how they can play a vital role in shifting the conversation to a focus on ending breast cancer by 2020. Sessions will give advocates the skills, knowledge and tools they need to support Breast Cancer Deadline 2020® both locally and nationally. The 2012 program will provide advocates access to:

  • Experts in innovation with proven track records for leading successful change initiatives
  • Leading scientists in key areas of prevention and metastasis
  • Front-line policy-makers discussing how to change government to help achieve the Breast Cancer Deadline 2020® goal
  • Hands-on training in the most effective advocate strategies to end breast cancer

Join advocates at NBCC’s 2012 Advocate Summit and be part of the movement that ends breast cancer by 2020.
