Cosponsor the Childhood Cancer STAR Act

Dear [Decision Maker],

As a constituent and volunteer for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), I ask that you cosponsor H.R. 820/S. 292, the Childhood Cancer STAR Act.

The Childhood Cancer Survivorship, Treatment, Access, and Research (STAR) Act would advance pediatric cancer research, increase transparency and expertise for pediatric cancer research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), ensure pharmaceutical companies have publicly accessible compassionate use policies, and expand research into the long-term side effects due to childhood cancer and its treatments.

Cancer is the leading cause of disease-related death among children ages 1-19, with more than 14,500 children facing a diagnosis this year. Despite an overall increase in survival rates, progress in treating certain pediatric cancers remains limited. Additionally, childhood cancer and its treatments often lead to lifelong side effects and survivorship issues.

Please take action to advance research and drug development for pediatric cancer and improve the lives of children across the country. Cosponsor H.R. 820/S. 292.

Thank you for your attention to this important issue.

Sincerely,
