On June 20, 2018 the Coalition participated in the Patient Quality of Life Coalition's 5th annual Lobby Day in Washington, DC.

  • 23 participating organizations, from 30 states, with 80 advocates, 104 hill meetings, resulted in 285 bipartisan co-sponsors in the House

  • Supportive Care Coalition Board members Lois Lane, Sarah Hill, Darren Henson, Bob Bergamini, and Gregg VandeKieft visited multiple house and senate offices seeking additional co-sponsorships for the bill. 

  • As a result the PCHETA bill passed in the House on July 23, 2018!
