We are happy to report that on Thursday, June 14, Representatives Peter King (R-NY) and Kathy Castor (D-FL) introduced H.R. 6114, the Metastatic Breast Cancer Access to Care Act. Thanks to NBCC’s outstanding advocates the bill was introduced with 35 original cosponsors.
Since 1991, the National Breast Cancer Coalition has focused on ensuring that all individuals at risk for or with breast cancer have access to quality health care. Waiving these waiting periods helps assure that women and men living with metastatic breast cancer have access to the support and medical care they deserve as quickly as possible.
