On Wednesday, May 18, Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks’ (IA-02)SERVICE Act and MAMMO for Veterans Act both unanimously passed the House of Representatives. Both of these bipartisan and bicameral bills would increase access to breast cancer screenings for female veterans.

“Our veterans risked their lives and their health in service to our country. Female veterans are especially at risk for several types of cancer, especially breast cancer,” said Miller-Meeks. “As a doctor, I have always told my patients that early detection is the key to successfully treating all types of cancer. I am thrilled to see both of my bipartisan bills pass the House today and I look forward to seeing them become law to support female veterans across the country.”
