When I was diagnosed, the question that came to me was not, Why me? or What did I do wrong? As the first person in my family with breast cancer, I wondered, Where did this come from? In the 13 years since my diagnosis, the question has evolved into, How can I effect change so that this will be different for the next woman, the next generation?
The Breast Cancer Fund is working every single day to find answers to this question. And this Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Breast Cancer Fund is asking our Congressional representatives to do the same by supporting legislation that will:
• Get toxic bisphenol A (BPA) out of food and beverage containers.
• Expand the FDA's authority to regulate cosmetics to make sure they're safe.
• Develop a national health-tracking system that will help us understand the links between diseases like breast cancer and environmental exposures.
• Reform the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) to assess the hazards of chemicals and control those of greatest concern.
Write to Congress today.
