Senate majority leader Harry Reid is trying to bring cancer research funds to his home state of Nevada through the introduction of a new bill. The bill, a so-called “rifle shot” bill because of the specificity of its scope, would increase research funds for four different cancer research centers across the country, including a new institute in Nevada.
The government money given to these four centers will help reimburse them for the high costs of cancer treatment, making them better able to focus on patients’ regimes. The institutes receiving the money include University Hospital in Cleveland, the Karmanos Cancer Center in Detroit, and the Cancer Institute of New Jersey. The funds will help provide cancer research, including mesothelioma.
