Update on Texas Advocacy Work

An important update from the Alliance for Fertility Preservation:

On behalf of the Alliance for Fertility Preservation, we wanted to give you a summary of the great strides that we made this year advocating for coverage in Texas! 

First, and most importantly, we want to sincerely thank many of you for supporting our efforts to protect parenthood after cancer for Texas patients and survivors over the past several months. It was truly a team effort! Although the legislation did not ultimately pass, remarkable progress was made during our first attempt at securing this coverage in Texas. 

We had a tremendous lobby day at the Texas Capitol and our coalition was recognized on the Senate floor during Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Awareness Week . During our lobby day meetings, our advocates secured a commitment from the Chairman of the House Insurance committee to consider our bill in a hearing the following week.
