Our most sincere thanks to Rep. Steve La Tourette and Rep. Marcy Kaptur for their support of H.R. 3067, the Accelerating the End of Breast Cancer Act 2011.
H. R. 3067 directs the President to create a special Commission to identify opportunities and ideas within both government and the private sector and recommend projects towards the following goals:
1. the primary prevention of breast cancer and;
2. the causes and prevention of breast cancer metastasis
Commission members will be appointed by the President, the Speaker of the House and the Senate Majority Leader and will seek to develop a strategic vision to meet these goals by January 2020.
If you live in Rep. Kaptur or Rep. LaTourette's district, please give them a call or send an email thanking them for their co-sponsorship of H.R. 3067.
If your representative hasn't signed on as a cosponsor yet, please give them a call today and ask them to do so.
