Last year, there were 53 major disasters declared. The year before that, we had 61 declared major disasters. As we continue to feel the effects of climate change, there are going to be more major disasters and we as a nation are going to have to pay for
the response and repair after these events. Now is the time to start thinking about what we can do to be better prepared for when these disasters strike.

Support FY2020 DoD Peer Reviewed Breast Cancer Research Program (BCRP) Appropriations

In 2018, it is estimated that 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed among U.S. women and approximately 2,470 new cases among U.S. men and more than 40,000 will die of the disease this year. In addition to invasive cancers, 63,960
new cases of in situ breast cancer will be diagnosed among women in the U.S. in 2018. Despite tremendous effort to combat this terrible disease, we still have significant work to do in learning how to prevent, treat, and cure breast cancer.  While we do not

BCRP) is a critical tool in this effort.
