Hillary Unveils Breast Cancer Plan
On the Ellen DeGeneres show today, Hillary Clinton unveiled her $300 million breat cancer plan.
Hillary's plan would provide $300 million a year in increased funding for breast cancer research at the National Institutes of Health, the National Cancer Institute, and the Department of Defense Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program.
In addition to funding research for new treatments, these investments will also go to investigate the cause of breast cancer, including the role that environmental pollutants may have, as well as, potential genetic and hereditary links. The plan would also improve access to screenings and treatment by making mammograms more affordable and providing funding for treatment for low-income women. Under Hillary's American Health Choices Plan, all women will have affordable, quality health insurance regardless of employment, marital status, or pre-existing conditions so they get the care and treatment they need.
Hillary's goal: To find a cure for breast cancer in our lifetimes.
Hillary has had a long record of being involved in the fight against breast cancer. [More...]
