In California, 178,000 people are diagnosed with cancer every year. Unfortunately, 60,000 will lose their battle with the disease. We need to reduce those tragic statistics!

That’s why I recently participated in Cancer Action Day with more than 100 other American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network volunteer advocates from around California. I met with my Senate and Assembly Offices, urging them to restrict the sale of flavored tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, which are an epidemic in schools and luring kids into a potential lethal addiction to nicotine.
