Local & Federal Government Advocacy

Advocacy is important to us. Kids like Caleb don’t get a chance to let their voice be heard among those who can enact positive change for children with cancer. We are their voice. Through advocacy programs we can influence change and help encourage increases in research spending, standard of care policy, and better treatments for childhood cancer.

Caleb’s Crusade will guide you through the advocacy process and attend events with you. We invite you to join us regardless of your experience level.

Join our advocacy team to be updated with advocacy changes, events, and let your voice be heard.
