Get rid of this obstacle to developing revolutionary drugs that made me cancer-free

Cancer is the leading cause of death for Hispanic Americans, responsible for one-fifth of all deaths, according to the American Cancer Society. Roughly 50,000 Hispanic men and women die of cancer every year.

As a Latina and a cancer survivor myself, I want to see cancer deaths in our community go down in the decades ahead. Unfortunately, a seemingly minor provision in last year’s Inflation Reduction Act could make it much more difficult to achieve that goal — by preventing revolutionary cancer drugs from ever reaching patients.
