Glastonbury Patch: U. of Hartford Coach Gallagher Teams Up with Cancer Survivors
"Also in attendance was Adam Clemens from Glastonbury, who became an ACS CAN advocate over a decade ago in honor of his mother, who he lost to breast cancer. Clemens met with Connecticut's Congressional delegation to ask for support in three key areas in the cancer fight. They discussed the need to support an increase in federal funding for cancer research. He also asked them to advance legislation that works to improve patients' quality of life and to support legislation that would close a loophole in Medicare that can result in surprise costs for seniors when a polyp is found during a routine colonoscopy."
