"This is a win for the community" - Cynthia Duncan - Director of Advocacy, CureSearch

On Monday, July 26, 2010, the House Subcommittee on Defense Appropriations recommended a Budget for FY 2011. The budget included $5 million earmarked for CureSearch for Childhood Cancer. The Budget Summary can be viewed here and the Earmarks can be viewed here. The bill must still pass the full House Appropriations Committee, the full House and Senate, and be signed by the President. The earmark was requested by Representatives Van Hollen (MD), Conyers (MI), Ryan (OH), Sestak (PA) and Sires (NJ). Major kudos gentlemen; could you add a zero?

The announcement from CureSearch can be viewed here: Advocacy Update from CureSearch for Children's Cancer. To quote:

"CureSearch for Children’s Cancer is pleased to report that the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee included $5 million for children’s cancer research, a significant increase over last year’s funding. This funding will support children’s cancer genomics research."

Congrats CureSearch and all the hardworking advocates!! Now let's make sure it STAYS in the budget!!
