According to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, 100 congressmen have stepped forward to co-sponsor the resolution to declare September as Blood Cancer Awareness Month! Now that we've hit the magic number, the resolution will go "before the House Energy and Commerce Committee for approval before being sent to the House floor" (Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Action Alert, September 20 2010). I'm not the most knowledgeable on federal government infrastructure, but I know this is a step in the right direction!
Thanks to everyone who signed the petition. Good work!
