It's a disease that affects nearly all of us.
That's cancer. And survivors in the stateline are taking their cause as "Ambassadors of Cancer" to Capitol Hill.
In an event called "Celebration on the Hill" sponsored by the american cancer society. Cancer advocates are pushing for laws to build more awareness about the disease.
In fact, one area cancer survivor says more funding is needed for cancer research, because 1 in every 3 women may be diagonsed with the disease.
