Conquer Childhood Cancer Act Passed

Posted in Uncategorized by scarsonmsm on July 30, 2008

I’m very happy to share that the Conquer Childhood Cancer Act was signed into law yesterday, authorizing $30 million annually over five years to support the work of the Children’s Oncology Group and other pediatric cancer researchers.  My son is healthy today because of  years of research, and this funding will help insure that more children are returned to health and others (and their families) are spared the battle.  $30 million a year is not nearly enough, buit it is a big step.
