The Comprehensive Cancer Survivorship Act
The Comprehensive Cancer Survivorship Act, re-introduced in June 2023, is comprehensive, bipartisan survivorship legislation with a number of provisions that directly address issues faced by the nation's 500,000 childhood cancer survivors along the continuum of survivorship care. 

More than 95% of childhood cancer survivors will have a significant health related issue by the time they are 45 years of age. Despite many studies and reports over the past twenty years, there is no standard of care for the treatment of these individuals in the primary care setting even though they face significant and unusual health challenges, including hearing loss, osteoporosis, infertility and cardiac late effects.  Often there is no formal transition from the oncologist to a primary care physician, and there is minimal or no care coordination where follow-up occurs. Establishing a standard of care for childhood cancer survivors as they transition to primary care will minimize existing wide variations in care and improve outcomes for childhood cancer survivors. The Comprehensive Cancer Survivorship Act would help address these problems through multi-faceted mechanisms.

Thank you for helping us spread the word about this legislation to Congressional offices using this action alert!
