Bill Description:

A Bill



To provide funding for programs at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences regarding breast cancer in younger women , and for other purposes.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.
This Act may be cited as the "Annie Fox Act".

SECTION 2. FINDINGS.
The Congress finds the following:
(1) Breast cancer is a serious health concern for all women , striking more women in the world than any other type of cancer other than skin cancer.

(2) In the past 50 years, women's lifetime risk of breast cancer has nearly tripled in the United States.

(3) Despite notable progress in efforts to expand knowledge of breast cancer and its causes, there is still much to learn, and financial resources are needed to accomplish this goal.

(5) Broadening the scope of current research to include underrepresented populations, in particular women who are 15 to 40 years of age, is necessary to have a comprehensive understanding of breast cancer and the long-term health effects of cancer treatments on younger women .

(6) Breast cancer is a leading cause of cancer death in women who are 15 to 40 years of age.

(7) Approximately 11,000 women under the age of 40 will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, of which nearly 1,300 will die.

(8)There are more than 250,000 women living in the United States today who were age 40 or under when they were diagnosed with breast cancer

(9) Young women's cancers are generally more aggressive and result in lower survival rates.

(10)Young women with breast cancer struggle with many issues that their post-menopausal counterparts don't face, including: the possibility of early menopause, pregnancy after diagnosis, generally more advanced cancers at diagnosis, and higher mortality rates.

(11) As the incidence of young women with breast cancer is much lower than in older women, young women are an underrepresented population in many research studies.
