Tiffany LaSasso and Dana Grasso (pictured at right) took part in the 14th Annual Alliance for Childhood Cancer Action Days in Washington, D.C. These Action Days bring the community together to advocate for important childhood cancer issues currently before Congress. This is the second year LaSasso and Grasso participated. People from across the country joined together and speak to the representative/senators for their states. LaSasso and Grasso asked Congress to: Fully fund the Childhood Cancer STAR Act, the most comprehensive childhood cancer bill in history; Fully fund the Childhood Cancer Data Initiative for another year; cosponsor the Accelerating Kids’ Access to Care Act, which reduces regulatory burdens to allow kids with complex medical needs greater access to out-of-state providers who can best meet their needs; cosponsor the Pediatric Drug Supply Act, which will help ensure childhood cancer patients can continue to have access to the medications they need. They are pictured with other representatives from across the country, as well as Congressmen Jeff Van Drew and Tom Kean.
