Childhood Cancer STAR Act
The Childhood Cancer Survivorship, Treatment, Access & Research (STAR) Act of 2017 is sweeping childhood cancer legislation that will help children with cancer live longer, healthier lives. Learn more about this bill. →
The STAR Act was reintroduced in February 2017, as H.R.820 in the House of Representatives and S.292 in the Senate. The Childhood Cancer STAR Act is the most comprehensive childhood cancer legislation ever taken up by Congress. It represents important bipartisan legislation designed to advance pediatric cancer research and child-focused cancer treatments, while also improving childhood cancer surveillance and providing enhanced resources for survivors.
The Childhood Cancer STAR Act of 2015 was passed by the U.S. House of Representative in the closing days of the 114th Congress but did not clear the Senate before the end of the session. We have high hopes to see this bill signed into law this session, but we need your help to get there!
