Congratulations and a huge thank you to Joe and Amy for your teamwork and determination in bringing this to fruition. I can write this note because I had the good fortune to have found my breast cancer tumor when it was in the early stages. I'll never forget the first meeting with my oncologist who assured me that with early detection breast cancer is one on the most curable forms of cancer. I hope this legislation will increase the survival rate for many more women.

Well meaning law. Inappropriate forum. Legislators should stay out of medicine unless absolutely necessary. Screening issues are complicated and should be based on well designed randomized patient studies, not anecdotal cases. Brown should have stuck to his guns.
