Date:6/28/2008

Deborah Morosini, BJALCF Board member, heard the news, and responded;
"I applaud Senators Hagel and Feinstein for their sage wisdom and compassionate actions. Each of them has shown steadfast and unwavering support to eradicate a disease that is so lethal and widespread that it has almost become part of our global landscape. Unacceptable, but tolerated. No more.

I am deeply grateful to these visionary leaders."

On behalf of everyone at the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation we applaud and thank Senators Chuck Hagel and Dianne Feinstein and the Lung Cancer Alliance for beginning to put an end to the world's Number One Cancer Killer.
