Today, the full House of Representatives passed the Lymphedema Treatment Act, moving us one giant step closer to the bill becoming law!
The vote was 402/13 - a tremendous show of bipartisan support! We will share a video as soon as it becomes available.
Now, we need to keep the momentum going - we have just one month to get the bill through the Senate! The last in-session day for this Congress is currently scheduled for December 16th. If the bill is not signed into law by the end of this Congress, then we have to begin the process all over again next January.
Please take a moment to thank House members and urge the Senate to follow suit and act swiftly to pass the LTA! Click here to send your email to the House and Senate in one step. And stay tuned for more action items in the new future.
We truly wouldn't be here without you. I know sometimes we all wonder if our voice makes a difference, but I can assure you it does. And you don't have to take my word for it. Just watch the video footage from the Committee Markup in July and the Floor Statements on Monday. Members of Congress repeatedly commented on how much hearing from advocates made a difference in bringing this issue to the forefront.
Your voice is making change happen!!
