As Vice President Joe Biden prepares to host the "National Cancer Moonshot Summit" on June 29 to discuss cancer research with scientists, oncologist, donors and patients, we at Critical Mass want to ensure that the voices of adolescents/young adults (AYAs) with cancer are included in that conversation. To that end, our community has penned an open letter to VP Biden, which we submit with hope, determination and a commitment to support any national effort that will improve the lives of AYAs with cancer.
