Sheryl Crow Meets With Congress For Breast Cancer Research

Much like Edward Norton last week, Sheryl Crow traveled to Congress Wednesday to testify on a subject she’s passionate about: breast cancer. The singer was diagnosed with the disease in 2006 and ultimately had a full recovery. The mystery behind why she developed cancer — especially with no family history of the disease — has driven her to push for new research into potential environmental factors. From the article,

“I want to know what causes this disease – for me, and for the 2.3 million others who share this diagnosis,” said Crow as she spoke on behalf of the National Breast Cancer Coalition. “We need more resources to figure out what the environment has to do with [it].”

The bill the organization and Crow are fighting for would provide $200 million over the next five years for research into possible related environmental causes.
