Press Release

Congressman John Moolenaar is a long-time supporter of cancer research. As a member of the House Appropriations Committee, which funds federal cancer research, he has worked across the aisle to ensure cancer research funding is included in federal legislation. Last year, he voted to fund research at the National Institutes of Health and its National Cancer Institute.   

“Universities in Michigan are doing outstanding research in the fight against cancer and I am proud to support them in their efforts," said Moolenaar. "Today, on World Cancer Day, we remember those who have lost their lives to cancer and the families who have been affected. Cancer has taken too many loved ones from us and the research our universities are doing will help find new treatments and save lives.”

Last year, Ferris State University received a federal grant of more than $300,000 to do further cancer research.
