'Johanna's Law' Passed in the House of Representatives; New Bill Will Save Thousands of Women's Lives
HAVERTON, Pa., Nov. 14, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- It is a historic moment in the life of Sheryl Silver, the advocates in the Sandy Rollman Ovarian Cancer Foundation and more significantly, for the lives of millions of women in the United States. The House of Representatives has passed Johanna's Law, the Gynecologic Cancer Education and Awareness Act. Named after Johanna Silver Gordon, a health conscious former public school teacher who died from ovarian cancer, her sister Sheryl has been working along with ovarian cancer advocates for three years to bring Johanna's Law to the attention of Capitol Hill. The bill has attracted broad bi-partisan support, as over half the members (257) of the U.S. House of Representatives and over forty percent of the Senate are co-sponsors. Other endorsing groups include the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), Society of Gynecologic Oncologists (SGO) and other groups representing 300,000+ doctors, nurses, women's groups and cancer survivors.
