NCCR Unveils Six New Public Service TV Announcements

WASHINGTON--The National Coalition for Cancer Research (NCCR), a Washington coalition of more than 20 cancer-related organizations founded in 1986, unveiled its new series of six 30-second television public service announcements at a Capitol Hill ceremony. The campaign also includes airport dioramas that repeat the TV messages.

Speaking about the budget process in which the 104th Congress is currently engaged, Rep. John Porter (R-Ill) reassured the Coalition: "Everybody agrees that downsizing is necessary, but cancer research is one place where we definitely do not want to cut."

Rep. Porter, chairman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education and Related Agencies, pointed out in his talk that biomedical research is important not only for its role in finding ways to prevent and cure cancer, but also for the overall economy, since such research provides the country with "thousands of high-tech jobs."
