AMAZING NEWS – The Childhood Cancer STAR Act Signed Into Law! This groundbreaking legislation authorizes $30 million annually from 2019 to 2023 for programs and research related directly to childhood cancer. This is the most comprehensive childhood cancer bill ever signed into law; prioritizing childhood cancer research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and improving targeted treatments, surveillance and quality-of-life resources for survivors. This is wonderful news, but our work isn’t over! Now we must get this legislation funded every year for the next 5 years. We will need you every step of the way to make sure STAR Act is fully funded. Please join us in sharing this milestone and continuing the support for childhood cancers. Every step we take together as a community of advocates to change the reality of childhood cancer is a victory. But this is a marathon, not a sprint. We will NEVER Stop Fighting against Childhood Cancer. #pauliestrong #morethan4 #missourboy #pediatriccancer
