It is one of the worst news for any parent to hear – “your child has cancer.” And the unfortunate fact is this devastating disease claims too many children every year. I want to make sure every child has the resources to survive cancer and make a full recovery.
During my time in Congress, I have introduced several bills designed to increase funding for research and treatments, including The STAR Act and 21st Century Cures Act.
Annette Leslie, founder of the Carson Leslie Foundation, wrote an article for Park Cities People magazine highlighting our friendship and my efforts to help children battling cancer. I would like to thank Annette for featuring me in her article.
