A bill has been introduced to Congress by Congressman Sander M. Levin and
Congresswoman Kay Granger to promote education about gynecological cancers.

The bill would authorize a national gynecological cancer early detection and awareness campaign directed at women and their physicians.

For a synopsis of the bill, see http://thegrouproom.com/johanna.htm ;

to send your representatives an email supporting the bill, see http://congress.nw.dc.us/sgo/home/

Education has been a primary concern in the OVCA support group I attend. There is general agreement that if we had been more educated about ovarian cancer, we probably would have been quicker to find the root of the symptoms that we had. Sending an email to your representatives is a good way to express your opinion, and your right as a member of their constituency.
