Thank you to everyone for all of your well wishes, advocacy, and support for the Gabriella Miller Kids First Research Act 2.0! We all had quite a big step towards our ultimate goal of having our Bill signed into law with the Hearing before the Energy & Commerce Health Subcommittee.
At the end of her testimony Ellyn held up a list of almost 1,000 kids that have/are battling cancer. Chairwoman Eshoo of the Health Subcommittee said how powerful and moving it was to bring so many kids to be represented at the Hearing. We received approximately 1,000 names in about three (3) days! All of these children will be entered into the Congressional Record of the testimony before the Health Subcommittee.
We have one (1) week to submit our final written testimony. It would be fantastic to gather at least 5,000 names to show our elected officials and members for the Energy and Commerce Committee and Health Subcommittee how our childhood cancer community stands together with one voice to express the critical unmet needs for additional funding for childhood cancer and disease research.
To have your child encluded in the Official Congressional Record of the Energy and Commerce’s Health Subcommittee Hearing for the Gabriella Miller Kids First Research Act 2.0, please complete the form on the right. We must have all names submitted no later than October 29, 2021.
Thank you. We are glad to have as many children represented in this historic legislation to improve the outcomes of children with childhood cancer and rare disease.
