Thank you for attending!
As a member of the Alliance for Childhood Cancer, the Children's Cause was proud to help bring to life the 5th Annual Childhood Cancer Action Day on May 17th. Two hundred advocates from around the country attended the event, spending a full day in advocacy training before taking to the Hill in pre-arranged meetings with their Congressmen.
This year's event came at an especially important time, as the Childhood Cancer STAR Act is nearing the critical Committee stage of the legislative process.
The advocates' efforts paid off big-time! The very next day, the STAR Act reached a huge milestone: Over HALF of the House of Representatives had officially signed on as co-sponsors of this life-saving legislation!
