A 'Common Sense' Bill to Help Young Cancer Survivors

July 12, 2018

If passed, the H.R. 2976 bill would defer student loan payments for individuals who are undergoing cancer treatment. Hear what one advocate had to say about it.

Paying for cancer treatment while keeping up with student loans can be difficult for many survivors. But, a new bill was introduced to Congress that, if passed, would defer student loans until after the person finishes active treatment.

This week, we spoke to Erin Price, a state leader for the Young Survival Coalition and board member for Critical Mass, about the H.R. 2976 bill, which she recently advocated for at Capitol Hill.
