thank you for this news. this is 100% wrong! every person who has cancer needs to be treated equally. they all deserve to live, and have the best care possible. there shouldn't be choices. who left congress in charge to play God?! make a fund for everybody to be treated equally. cancer happens to everybody - not just adults.
