Call for original co-sponsors on the LIVER Act – Support robust research and funding for liver cancer and liver illness initiatives

In 2018, approximately 42,220 people in the United States will be diagnosed with primary liver cancer, and approximately 30,200 will die from the disease because it is rarely detected sufficiently early for successful treatment.[1]

liver cancer is diagnosed in the later stages.[5]
