Congress reauthorized the Creating Hope Act!
Thank you to our sponsors, Congressmen Butterfield, McCaul and Van Hollen, and Senators Casey and Isakson, for their commitment to children with cancer and other rare diseases. Thank you to the FDA for executing this critical program.
The reauthorization is part of the Omnibus Appropriations Act that President Obama signed into law on Friday. (at Section 765, Page 107).
We aim to achieve permanent reauthorization, beyond the Omnibus’ new sunset of September 30, 2016, by supporting 21st Century CURES.
Thank you for joining us as we fight for new drugs for kids with cancer and other serious illnesses.
