A bus on a mission


ROCHESTER, MN (FOX 47) -- The fight against cancer rolls into Rochester.

The Fight Back Express bus made a stop at the Hope Lodge this morning.

This "petition bus" is on a major mission, stopping in 48 states in just six months.

People are encouraged to actually sign the bus as a message to lawmakers to make cancer a top priority in Washington, including getting all Americans access to quality health care.

Cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers are all encouraged to share their stories.

Robianne Schultz, a breast cancer survivor, says, "I am a 7 year breast cancer survivor. I know the struggle first hand. I want to make this a national priorty for lawmakers." 

Rochester is the first of nine stops the Fight Back Express will be making in Minnesota.
