|On Wednesday, April 13th, I joined fellow lawmakers, advocates, and cancer survivors for a press conference at the Capitol to advocate for the passage of SB 358, a bill I championed with my colleagues to expand coverage for breast and ovarian cancer screenings and diagnosis. I am so proud of Katie Heffernan Farrell, West Haven resident and breast cancer survivor, for bravely sharing her story in an effort to insure everyone has equal access to life saving healthcare services.

Great news - The bill advanced out of the Appropriations Committee with bipartisan support. Two more steps to go to get this passed! I will keep you updated.
