Every year, the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network holds rallies across the country to give a voice to those impacted by cancer. Idaho’s Cancer Action Day takes place all morning at the statehouse, beginning with a “legislative breakfast” where volunteers can meet with lawmakers.

The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network will screen a new movie in Boise Thursday to help raise funds for people who face breast and ovarian cancer.

The movie Decoding Annie Parker stars Helen Hunt and Idaho actor Aaron Paul. 

Jennifer Poole with the American Cancer Society says the film is based on real events. “It’s about the journey of research doctor and a breast cancer patient, to determine there is a genetic connection for some woman as to why they get breast cancer and ovarian cancer.”
