Urge Congress to Support H.R. 640

Representative Doris Matsui Reintroduces Bone Marrow Failure Disease Research and Treatment Act

On February 10, 2011  Representative Doris Matsui (D-CA) reintroduced the Bone Marrow Failure Disease Research and Treatment Act.  The bill, which is very similar to the legislation introduced by Representative Matsui in 2009, has been designated H.R. 640 in the 112th Congress (2011-2012).

H.R. 640 increases the Federal Government’s commitment to researching and treating aplastic anemia, MDS, PNH, and other acquired bone marrow failure diseases.  On February 26, 2009, Representative Doris O. Matsui (D-CA) formally introduced this legislation that will bring together the resources of several Federal Agencies to advance our understanding of and treatments for Aplastic Anemia, Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS) and PNH. We need your support NOW! Call or write your Congress-Person and get their support for this legislation. Ask them to Co-Sponsor this bill NOW and to help get their colleagues to join them.
