The National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC) today announced that Representative Anna Eshoo received a perfect score in its 108th Congressional Voting Record. NBCC's Voting Record measures support among Members of Congress for the Coalition's legislative priorities. Representative Eshoo received a check mark in each of the categories that NBCC deemed a high priority.

NBCC's Voting Record outlines all of the Coalition's legislative priorities and how each Member of Congress acted on them. These actions include votes, co-sponsorships and signing onto Dear Colleague letters in support of legislation.

"Congresswoman Eshoo has been a longstanding, active champion of the goals of the National Breast Cancer Coalition. Her unwavering support through the years has been critical on some of NBCC's most important legislative priorities. She has helped NBCC lead the fight for substantive legislation including federal funding for research through the Department of Defense, and for research on possible environmental causes of breast cancer. Without her leadership, there would be no system of health care for thousands of uninsured women with breast and cervical cancer," said Fran Visco, president of the National Breast Cancer Coalition.

The National Breast Cancer Coalition is a grassroots organization dedicated to ending breast cancer through the power of action and advocacy. The Coalition's main goals are to increase federal funding for breast cancer research; improve access to high-quality health care and breast cancer clinical trials for all women; and expand the influence of breast cancer advocates in all aspects of the breast cancer decision-making process.
