Letter to Majority Leader

Our efforts last Congress to obtain a conversation about the eligibility of the DIPG Awareness Resolution to receive suspension of rules consideration for a floor discussion and vote were met with silence, amid the consideration afforded to hundreds of bills of no urgency, such as the naming of post offices, and the like.  Obtaining 219 cosponsors last Congress (117th, H. Res. 404) required constant action and educational Congressional Office meetings, a feat that our fledgling group is not likely to achieve this Congress. However, we are heartened by the establishment of DIPG Awareness Day regardless, with the 5th unanimous consent passage of the Senate DIPG/Pediatric Brain Cancer Awareness Resolution and a continuing effort at the state level to acknowledge DIPG and childhood brain cancer.  In this sense, our Mission is accomplished, despite the lack of official acknowledgement by the House of Representatives.

Letter to the Majority Leader, Congressman Steny Hoyer (117th Congress)
