Hope for Lung Cancer Research Dollars in California: The Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation (BJALCF) Applauds Landmark Legislation to Push through Funding for Lung Cancer Research in California
Date:1/9/2009

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Today is "a moment in history" in the battle against Lung Cancer -- the Number One Cancer Killer, thanks to California Assembly Member Tom Torlakson (D-11th District).

"AB 89 will provide much needed funding for Lung Cancer research while saving our state billions in tobacco-related health care costs," said California Assembly Member Torlakson.

I look forward to working with organizations on the front lines of Lung Cancer research, such as the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation, to get this important law passed this year."

Addario, who trekked to the state Capitol to meet the then California State Senator Torlakson, last August, to push for Lung Cancer research legislation, said it will take a considerable amount of work to see this through, but today "has been a long time coming."

Addario has pledged the Foundation's ongoing endorsement and commitment to push this through and t
