I certainly hope this bill passes. My family carries a gene for a potentially fatal disease. We have avoided genetic testing, which also means that we have avoided possibly early treatment. This does not save insurance companies money in the long run - as they have to pay for more expensive treatments once the disease has manifested.

PLEASE PASS THIS BILL!!
