Trevor’s Law Is One Signature Away From Becoming A Law
It was a historic day in Washington yesterday, with a strong Idaho connection.
Trevor's Law, a federal cancer cluster bill, passed the Senate weeks after it passed the House and now is one signature from the President away from becoming law.
It's all because of a local cancer survivor, 26 yr old Trevor Schaefer, who’s on a mission to make a change.
Trevor was diagnosed at 13 with a brain tumor while growing up on Payette Lake in McCall, he and his mother moved to Boise to be closer to treatments.
He beat it and soon turned his attention to research into cancer clusters and why the government had no responsibility to investigate claims by communities that an environmental "issue" was poisoning their families.
Trevor's Law gives communities an opportunity to trigger a federal investigation into potential cancer-causing problems.
