Cancer can touch anyone. It knows no boundaries. Despite declaring a war on cancer in 1971 by signing the National Cancer Act of 1971, cancer remains one of the scariest words that a person can hear. In the childhood cancer community, it continues to be the number one leading disease killer of our children in the United States. Statistically, forty-six children a day in the United States will be diagnosed with some form of cancer.
This site is about the fight against childhood cancer. Cancer causes crisis. It strikes fear. And, in many instances, cancer causes loss of life. And, just as it took my amazing daughter Alexis from us, it awoke in me the fight to see an end to childhood cancer. That represents the opportunity from this tragedy. I truly believe I am continuing her battle, her journey and carrying on her legacy. I invite you to look around my site, explore and spend time and discover more about the grassroots advocacy that consumes me. On this site you will find places to view my writings, my blogs, congressional testimony, lobbying activities, credits, links, fundraisers, ways to get involved and finally ways we can connect, and you can engage my services.
Ultimately, this site is dedicated to my hero, Alexis Gina Agin. She battled cancer for thirty-three months without a complaint. She has inspired me in everything I do. I love you Alexis and will never give up your fight. Soon baby, soon.
