Congressional Cancer Survivors Causus
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.

It was a beautiful afternoon to support First Lady Melania Trump’s “Be Best” campaign on May 7, 2018 at an event held in the White House Rose Garden. The “Be Best” campaign promotes healthy living, using social media in positive ways, and reducing opioid abuse. In this photo (from left to right) are: Fern Jennifer Stone; the chief development and communications officer for the Children’s Inn at NIH; Francis Collins; Jennie Lucca, chief executive officer of the Children’s Inn; Alex Azar, secretary of the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services; Larry Tabak, NIH deputy director; and Laura King, senior director of Volunteers and Community Outreach at the Children’s Inn.
