Frank Diliberto, Business Relationship Manager
American Cancer Society, Cancer Action Network
Their mission: Achieving a world free from the pain and suffering of cancer requires a comprehensive public policy agenda. Our mission and thus our work includes a strong focus on preventing cancer, seeking new cures and treatments and ensuring all Americans have access to the medical care that could save their life. We also support the determination and courage of cancer patients and survivors by working to improve their quality of life both during treatment and after it has ended.
Our enormous record of accomplishment is a result of our volunteers and staff relentlessly advocating at every level of government, from local city councils and county commissions to every state legislature, the U.S. Congress and the federal government.
Frank and his wife volunteer their time and offer financial support at campaign time. They sometimes have programs, which can require support of policy makers. They also participate in outreach, and help to increase attendance at programs such as:
ACS CAN Lights of Hope Ceremony:
More than 25,000 Lights of Hope – each decorated with the name of a friend or loved one impacted by cancer – will circle the reflecting pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. Many will honor those who survived cancer, but too many others are in memory of lives cut short by this terrible disease.
