10 Dec: Beach Legislation To Establish “Teen Cancer Awareness Week” Signed Into Law

TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by Senator Jim Beach (D-Camden) that establishes the third week in January of each year as “Teen Cancer Awareness Week” was signed into law today. The legislation, which was done in memory of Alicia Rose DiNatale, who died from a rare form of cancer at age 17, will help raise awareness of the challenges facing teens with cancer.

“The struggles facing teens dealing with cancer are unique from those of other age groups and they deserve more attention,” said Beach. “This recognition will shine more light on the difficulties teenagers inflicted with this awful disease must go through and how we can make it easier for them.”
