Today, the California Assembly Health Committee voted to advance the California Cancer Care Equity Act (SB 987). The Cancer Care Is Different coalition issued the following statement:
”The Cancer Care Is Different Coalition thanks Chairman Jim Wood and members of the Assembly Health Committee for advancing the California Cancer Care Equity Act (SB 987). Current law makes it needlessly difficult for cancer patients from underserved communities to access the latest cancer treatments, clinical trials, and specialized care that could mean the difference between life or death.”
“We look forward to building on this momentum to ensure equitable access to cancer care. We now urge the Assembly Appropriations Committee to pass this bill without delay.”
The California Cancer Care Equity Act (SB 987) is now before the Assembly Appropriations Committee for consideration.
