FY 2010 Budget

Here is some info from OCNA regarding President Obama's FY 2010 budget and increases for the NIH and CDC.

  • The National Institutes of Health (NIH) would receive $30.759 billion, which is a $442 million (1.4 percent) increase over FY 2009. Of this amount, cancer research at the NIH through its National Cancer Institute (NCI) program would receive an increase of $268 million over FY 2009, representing a 5 percent boost and bringing cancer research funding at NIH to $5.15 billion. In FY 2008, NCI devoted $22 million to ovarian cancer research.
  • The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Division of Cancer Control and Prevention would receive $341.1 million, which is an increase of $800,000 (0.2 percent) over FY 2009. Of this amount, Johanna's Law: The Gynecologic Cancer Education and Awareness Act would receive $6.807 million and the Ovarian Cancer Control Initiative ovarian cancer research would receive $5.414 million. This is a moderate increase for both programs
The Ovarian Cancer National Alliance is the leading advocacy organization for ovarian cancer patients and their families in the United States and works to increase federal funding for ovarian cancer research, improve health care practice and raise public awareness about the symptoms of this disease.

Every Day is a Blessing !
