From National Breast Cancer Coalition
We have wonderful news! Yesterday, the House Appropriations Full Committee passed the Fiscal Year 2010 Defense Appropriations bill and included $150 million for the Department of Defense (DOD) peer-reviewed Breast Cancer Research Program (BCRP). The bill now moves to the full House of Representatives for a vote. As always, we will keep you informed, and let you know about any actions you may need to take.
Please call Rep. Marcy Kaptur (OH-9), Rep. Tim Ryan (OH-17) and Rep. Steve LaTourette (OH-14) and give them a big thank you for their help in securing these important research funds for 2010.
