Rep. Miller Co-Sponsors Bill to Accelerate Breast Cancer Research

Washington, Jun 7, 2013 - While significant progress has been made in the fight against breast cancer, far too many Americans remain impacted by this devastating disease. According to the American Cancer Society, over 232,000 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer this year alone, while one-in-eight women in the U.S. will develop the disease during their lifetime. This week, I co-sponsored H.R. 1830, the Accelerating the End of Breast Cancer Act to help advance research into the causes and prevention of breast cancer. Specifically H.R. 1830 would utilize existing resources and investments to establish a commission that would be tasked with identifying opportunities within the government and the private sector and recommend projects to further research into breast cancer prevention. I will continue to work with my colleagues to make detection, research and prevention a priority so that we can eradicate breast cancer once and for all.
