City of Hope applauds passage of California Cancer Patients Bill of Rights resolution by California Senate

City of Hope, a world-renowned National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center, applauds passage of the Cancer Patients Bill of Rights (Senate Concurrent Resolution 11) today by the California Senate, and urges swift consideration and passage by the California Assembly.
The resolution builds momentum for the Cancer Care Is Different campaign, and raises critical awareness about the adverse patient impact caused by restricted access to leading cancer treatment centers, where the most advanced, lifesaving therapeutics are available.
 City of Hope thanks Sen. Susan Rubio for championing the Cancer Patients Bill of Rights resolution, and our coalition members for their partnership: American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, California Chronic Care Coalition, International Myeloma Foundation and Cedars-Sinai.
