For families everywhere, making progress to eradicate cancer means more birthdays, more Christmases, more graduations, and more daily experiences.

US Representative Nikema Williams stated that she discovered that "healthcare in America is not yet a human right" after her mother passed away from cancer in a taped speech aired at the press conference.

According to the paper, the overturning of Roe v. Wade is also anticipated to have an impact on cancer treatment by reducing the alternatives available to pregnant cancer patients.

"There is question over how a specific cancer therapy may result in the termination of a pregnancy in light of the recent Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, which terminates the constitutional right to an abortion. Due to the possible legal repercussions for both the doctor and the mother, such ambiguity may prevent some doctors from promptly writing a prescription or providing other medical services "depending on the report.

In 2020, almost 10 million breast, prostate and colorectal cancer examinations were postponed because of the Covid-19 epidemic in the US. The paper makes suggestions for advancing the cause and regaining momentum.

The COVID-19 pandemic's effects on people with cancer, cancer surveillance technologies, and the entire American health system are the main topics of this year's special segment. This section is meant to educate anybody interested in the long-term effects of the pandemic on cancer health concerns, including policymakers, researchers, physicians, cancer control activists, patients, and/or carers.

The current understanding of COVID-19 risk in cancer patients and recommendations to reduce viral propagation are both addressed in depth. It is projected that the pandemic's reduced resources and availability to care will make cancer detection and treatment more challenging, leading to a fall in incidence, a rise in death, and a decrease in survival in the future.
