White Ribbon Relay 

Happy National November Lung Cancer Awareness Month! To recognize Lung Cancer Awareness Month, all of our collegiate chapters are participating in the first-ever cross-country white ribbon relay! The White Ribbon Project (TWRP), started by Pierre and Heidi Onda, serves to increase lung cancer awareness and change the perception of lung cancer by making and distributing white ribbons, which serve as symbols of unity and love within the lung cancer community. Two white ribbons, one starting on the East Coast and one starting on the West Coast, will make their way through our 45+ college chapters, finally meeting Heidi and Pierre in Denver, Colorado, the location of the original TWRP white ribbon made in October 2020.

We invite you to follow us as our white ribbon moves across the country through each of our chapters!

Our white ribbon made its first move - from Wellesley College to Harvard University. Follow along to its next location, Boston University!

EVENTS

HOUSE RESOLUTION

We worked with the co-chairs of the bipartisan Congressional Lung Cancer Caucus to draft H.R.1192 in support of lung cancer awareness month and the early detection of lung cancer. This resolution was introduced last month by Congressmen Brendan Boyle and John Rutherford! See the House Resolution here!

BILL

We worked with Congressman Brendan F. Boyle (PA-02) and U.S. Senator Tina Smith (MN) to draft "Katherine’s Lung Cancer Early Detection and Survival Act of 2021". This bicameral legislation is to expand coverage for lung cancer screenings to help detect cancer in more patients earlier and to save more lives.

SENATE RESOLUTION

We worked with Senators Tina Smith and Marco Rubio to draft S.Res.780, “Expressing Support for Lung Cancer Awareness Month and for the early detection of lung cancer." It was passed by unanimous consent, marking the first time the Senate has passed a resolution recognizing the importance of lung cancer screening. See the Senate Resolution here!
