Summing up our requests, Calaneet noted: “I thank you, on behalf of the women I serve, for continuing to support programs that help women and health providers better understand and treat ovarian cancer. We know these programs have reduced suffering. We know women whose lives have been saved by knowing they were at high risk or who got new treatments that kept their cancer at bay. We respectfully request that you maintain support for these critical activities.”
Committee members asked Calaneet about recent news stories on cancer care, which underscore the importance of federal funding for education.
We are honored to serve as a voice for every person touched by ovarian cancer.
