The New York Times reports that in response to research linking a lack of insurance to delays in detecting malignancies, the American Cancer Society is devoting its entire $15 million advertising budget this year to the consequences of inadequate health coverage.

The article cites a 2003 study that estimated that one of every 10 cancer patients was uninsured.
