Dear Chairman Natcher:
Can you imagine a vaccine against cancer?
A conference recently held by the National Cancer Institute discussed just this possibility. We have moved so far in cancer research that it is now not a possibility but a probability.
With someone in America dying every 62 seconds from cancer, we need a drastic measure to support cancer research. Your leadership is absolutely necessary as we move forward.
I hope this letter finds you well and that the election turns out the way you want. We are all blessed that we have you as our Chairman.
Sincerely,
Mrs. Albert D. Lasker
