The International Myeloma Foundation Applauds Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker for Signing SB 300 (The Cancer Treatment Fairness Act) into Law
Today in Milwaukee cancer patient advocates, including myeloma Support Group members Linda Chowa and Mary Sandberg, at right, looked on as Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker signed the Cancer Treatment Fairness Act (SB 300) into law, making Wisconsin the 30th state to enact anticancer drug parity legislation. "This bill shows that our voices do indeed make a difference, because SB 300 was on its deathbed just three weeks ago, and today it is law," said Sue Enright, Midwest Director of Support Groups for the International Myeloma Foundation. "Thank you to every patient, family member, friend, healthcare professional and advocate who relentlessly stood with us throughout this long journey, and to our Wisconsin legislators who voted in favor of the bill."
