Q&A portion of the LIVESTRONG Presidential Town Hall on Cancer

On Thursday July 24th of the LIVESTRONG Summit Lance Armstrong will host a televised town hall discussion with Senator John McCain. I have been invited to be a part of a group of around 30 LIVESTRONG Summit delegates who will have a chance to participate in that discussion.

We will be seated onstage with Senator McCain and Lance throughout the program. During the audience Q&A portion of the program, some members of this small group may be called upon to ask a cancer-related question of Lance or the Senator. I have submitted to ask a question of Senator McCain.
"As a young adult cancer survivor I have learned that one of the best ways to help educate the public is by starting early and often (school aged children.) What type of plans do you have to start a national movement to educate our kids on cancer and other critical health related issues?"
Let's hope I get to ask Senator McCain my question!
