Trevor's Law, a bill that will allow for tracking of clusters of cancer has passed Congress, after seven years of work and delay. The bill is named after Idaho childhood cancer survivor, Trevor Schaefer, and was introduced by U.S. Senator Mike Crapo. a survivor of cancer himself.
After introducing the bill in 2011 with California Senator Barbara Baxter and Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Chariman James Inhofe, Crapo was able to get the bill passed this year.
