We Won!  Congress Funds Ovarian Cancer Research and Education

Great news came out of Washington, DC yesterday.  Congress has passed an omnibus appropriations bill for this fiscal year to fund ovarian cancer research and education!  The funding includes $5 million for Johanna’s Law: The Gynecologic Education and Awareness Act; $4.9 million for the Ovarian Cancer Control Initiative, and $16 million for the Ovarian Cancer Research Program run by the Department of Defense.

The Ovarian Cancer National Alliance (OCNA) fought hard to bring about this legislation.  Thanks to the HERA community for making calls, sending e-mails, and talking to your elected representatives.  You made a huge difference!
