On July 18, 2019, I had the pleasure to meet with some of the esteemed members of the Congressional Cancer Survivors Caucus during their visit to NIH. Here, I paused for a photo with (l-r) Congressman Earl “Buddy” Carter of Georgia, caucus co-chair; Jennie Lucca, chief executive officer of The Children’s Inn at NIH; Laura King, senior director of community engagement at The Children’s Inn; and Congressman Mark DeSaulner of California, a caucus co-founder and a leukemia survivor. The Congressional Cancer Survivors Caucus is a bipartisan group for members of Congress to discuss issues related to cancer diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship with a variety of stakeholders and experts.
