Advocacy Is a Family Affair for Our May Advocates of the Month
Christy Joyce, diagnosed with myeloma in 2008, decided to get involved in the Postcards for Parity Program "because it seemed horribly unfair that people are being denied access to lifesaving drugs." And when the Nevada woman asked her family to complete postcards for their legislators, her husband and three kids all asked if they could get involved too. This week, Christy and her family delivered the postcards collected to urge support of SB 266 to the Nevada state assembly members. Congratulations to the Joyce family, our May Advocates of the Month!
