Nathan Brown - January 2016
After seven years of work and delay, Trevor's Law has been passed by congress. Trevor's Law is a bill that that will allow for the tracking of clusters of cancer. Named after an Idaho childhood cancer survivor, Trevor Schaefer, the bill was first introduced by U.S. Senator Mike Crapo, a cancer survivor himself, in 2011.
Working together with Senator Barbara Baxter of California and the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Chairman, James Inhofe, Crapo worked to get Trevor's Law in the compromise toxins bill.
Recognizing the magnitude of the passing of the bill, Crapo states, "Every American, directly or indirectly, has been affected in some form by cancer and this legislation is another tool to continue fighting against this disease...the passage of Trevor's Law is a testament to the determination and commitment of many people."
