This is legislation that everyone who is reading this blog needs to keep a close eye on. If you are reading this it means that cancer has had an effect on your life. No one knows what the future holds for Senator Ted Kennedy but he is putting energy and effort into fighting a health battle that touches so many of us.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Sen. Edward Kennedy’s battle with a malignant brain tumor is likely to put a dramatic personal stamp on a health care cause he first championed nearly 40 years ago: The nation’s war on cancer.
The bill Kennedy plans to put forth seeks to improve the coordination of cancer research, prevention and treatment while giving more money to the National Cancer Institute and other public research agencies.
Let’s watch this and if the legislation is good then let’s advocate for our own self interest as well as those still to come.
