I think this is one of the most important bills that can speed up our access to brain tumor treatments. I helped write some of the words! This would work perfectly hand-in-hand with our patient navigation program. Right now, our patient navigation program has brain tumor experts thinking up the best combinations of treatments for each individual patient. We give the patient and their doctors a list of 5-10 plan options, which we feel would be the best for them. Invariably, the best plans are hard or impossible to get, because they involve experimental treatments. We managed to get some of them under expanded access or under the right to try pathway, but that it too much of a barrier for widespread use. We need direct, easy access to these treatments.
Do not do anything yet. We will soon announce how to help. Hate to ask - but we could also use some donations to help us with this. Make a donation at https://virtualtrials.org/donate11.cfm and be sure to specify "unrestricted" so we could use it for things like paying for the program that allows our members to contact congress easily.
