This bill has real and meaningful consequences for young adults with cancer. Currently, cancer is the leading natural cause of death for young adults. These young adults also have the leading rate of no insurance. They are unable to stay on their parents' insurance (if not in college or if forced to drop out due to their illness.) If they survive their illness, they have the "cancer label" -- an exclusionary preexisting condition. This bill will change all of this for young adults under 26. We have something to be thankful for!
