SENATOR YEE EARNS 100% RATING ON AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY SCORECARD

SACRAMENTO – Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco/San Mateo) received the top score of 100 percent on the recently released scorecard of the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN).

Yee voted for all 18 bills included in the scorecard, including legislation on access to care, cancer awareness, research, tobacco cessation, and the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

“For decades, the American Cancer Society has been at the forefront of the fight against cancer,” said Yee. “I am proud to stand with them and work to further address the needs of cancer patients, survivors, and their families.”

The American Cancer Society is a nationwide, community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem. The American Cancer Society was founded in 1913 as the American Society for the Control of Cancer (ASCC) by 15 prominent physicians and business leaders in New York City. Today, the organization has millions of supports and has helped saved thousands of lives.
