As a long time Pediatric Oncology Nurse, I would encourage Representative Berman to explore and offer his support Children's Cancer Research in the state of Texas. The vast majority of Texas children with cancer are treated in our state. Families experiencing childhood cancer need to be in their home community to have the support of family and friends.

Every major metropolitan area has an academic children's cancer center similar to St Jude's that is affiliated with the Children's Oncology Group. Additionally, San Antonio is home to the Children's Cancer Research Institute.
Please keep support for Texas children with cancer in Texas!!

Dear Mr. Berman,
More important than your charitable giving is the direct voice that you and your colleages have in determining our state budget. Please consider this when considering funding for TX Medicaid, CHIPs, and DARS.
