F.Y. 2008 U.S. research budget: Cancer vs I.E.D.s

Americans expected to die from cancer this year = 559,650.

Funding for fighting cancer next fiscal year = $4.7 billion.

Americans expected to die from I.E.D. attacks this year = about 700.

Funding for fighting I.E.D.s next fiscal year = $4.0 billion.

I wonder how much non-federal funding goes towards fighting cancer vs. fighting IEDs.
