Washington, D.C. – On Wednesday, at approximately 12:00 P.M., U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Michael Bennet (D-CO) will partner with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation – the largest private funder of childhood cancer research grants – for its luncheon briefing on the Hill. The senators will act as honorary Congressional hosts for a variety of panels discussing advances in immunotherapy and pediatric oncology research, and the challenges and opportunities in drug development and treatment.
 
In August, the Senate passed the Research to Accelerate Cures and Equity (RACE) for Children Act, which will provide children battling cancer with more innovative and promising treatment options. Rubio and Bennet introduced the legislation earlier this year.
 
Members of the media interested in attending must RSVP prior to the event here.
