Resolution to support funding for childhood cancer passes House

This week I co-sponsored House Resolution 1071 to support funding for childhood cancer and gave my heartfelt thanks to Megan Bugg for her advocacy for the resolution. Megan was diagnosed with Stage 4 Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma and has since been through 90 weeks of chemotherapy, 125 radiation treatments and 3 surgeries. 43 kids every day are diagnosed with a form of childhood cancer. Megan's battle continues and her courage to fight her disease and raise awareness for funding for others is sincerely applauded. The entire chamber was honored to welcome her to Springfield.
