“It was a privilege to join President Trump today as he signed the Childhood Cancer STAR Act into law. Building on the work of the 21st Century Cures Act, this law will help to deliver innovative treatments – and cures – to America’s youngest cancer patients. I am grateful for the young patients and cancer survivors, including 26th District constituent and childhood cancer survivor Sadie Keller, who have shared their stories and advocated for this critical legislation. Now the law of the land, the Childhood Cancer STAR Act offers renewed hope to these children and their families, and fulfills yet another promise to the American people.”
