Our friends over at the Young Survival Coalition have just shared this great, legislative advocacy opportunity with us and we couldn’t wait to share it with you!
From now through September 9, you have an important opportunity to make your voice count! The Metastatic Breast Cancer Access to Care Act is an important legislative priority of the National Breast Cancer Coalition that concerns Medicare and Social Security eligibility for metastatic breast cancer patients.
If passed, HR 2178/S 1374 would waive the 24-month waiting period for Medicare eligibility and the 5-month waiting period for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits.
During August, Congress is on a break, so it’s a great time to reach out. You are your own best advocate, and this is an important opportunity to make a difference!
