- R. 4897/S.2358 — the Women and Lung Cancer Research And Preventive Service Act of 2018, a bipartisan bill sponsored by Senator Feinstein (D-CA) and Senator Rubio (R-FL). Lung cancer is the #1 killer of women since 1987 and we need to figure out why. The incidence of lung cancer among women under the age of 60 has doubled within the last decade. In fact, two-thirds of never-smokers diagnosed with lung cancer are women. (You can submit a form in support here: https://www.votervoice.net/LCA/Campaigns/56534/Respond.)
