Lynn Schuchter shared a post by American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) on X, adding:

“Cancer drug shortages have affected generic, essential medicines that should be widely available to all. Our patients deserve more. That’s why I urge you to join me and ASCO in asking our lawmakers to find solutions to this crisis.”

Quoting American Society of Clinical Oncology’s post:

“Our members are sending a clear message to policymakers: cancer drug shortages have gone for too long, and we need solutions now.

Add your voice and sign our Open Letter.”
